Abe & Maya - Day 1

The friend I was visiting helped me get to the airport early, where I was able to get on an earlier flight to Chicago.  While waiting in customs, I logged into my email to let my parents know when to pick me up, and I found an email saying that she had given birth. » Read the rest of this entry «
