When I got to my connecting city I had missed my flight but the airline had rescheduled me for the next flight which was only about an hour later. Again, I called Adam to let him know. I think I spent every moment I could on the phone with him during my travels that day.
It was nearing midnight when I arrived in Boston. I was just following the signs to baggage claim when I suddenly saw Adam standing at the bottom of the escalator, waiting for me. His family was standing just a few feet behind him. I was so relieved and happy to see him, I just ran up to him and threw myself into his arms. Finally!
I think the exhilaration of seeing Adam again helped me not be too shy to meet his family. Adam's dad, mom, and littlest brother Danny were there. (Pat was at home, and Matt was in Chile on his mission). It was also late and I was really tired, so that probably added to my goofiness. I don't remember what we talked about but I was very relieved to find everybody was super nice and friendly. And quite silly!
