Stacie Turner of The Real Housewives of DC
The day Stacie Turner "has dreamed of" is finally here -- she's en route to Nigeria to connect with her biological father.

This past season on The Real Housewives of D.C., we saw the beginning Stacie's difficult quest to find her biological dad. And now, after much hard work, the father and daughter are just hours away from meeting in person.

"En route to JFK airport to head to Nigeria to meet my family! I have dreamed of this day for so long and its finally here!" she tweeted earlier today.

Stacie has been live-tweeting the whole event, posting photos of her travel partners, including husband Jason, on the way to Africa. "ARIK airlines is the bomb," she gushed. "Full lounge on the plane, nigerian food, nice staff- first class all the way baby!"

The last we heard from Stacie, she's landed in Lagos and is heading to Victoria Island -- be sure to follow the rest of her trip on Twitter.
