Iowa Adoption Story

West Des Moines Family Celebrates Christmas With New Daughter
DES MOINES, Iowa -- A West Des Moines family almost didn't make it home in time for their baby's first Christmas.

Greg and Lisa Wall were in China for the last two weeks picking up their adopted 10-month-old daughter Olivia.

They made it as far as Chicago, when their flight home was delayed on Christmas Eve.

"We were on a standby for a flight, but they weren't sure if we'd actually make it on, so Greg's parents and my parents drove to Chicago and drove us home," Lisa Wall said.

It was the last stretch of a two-year journey that ended just in time for Christmas.
