Trip #2

Hello, everyone.  Sorry for the silence during the past couple of days.   Tom and I arrived home on Tuesday night.  Wow, it was great to see our children.  We had missed them so much.  It was great to be back in America as well.  We are so blessed in our country.

The past couple of days have been a whirlwind of getting ready for Trip #2.  Tom and our oldest son will be returning to bring Julia home.  Our son (who is 15 years old) is so excited about this trip and can't wait to meet his new little sister.

Grandma and Grandpa have returned to the warmth of Florida.  We are so grateful for the help they gave us while we were away.

Tom & I want to thank all of the people who have helped us during this adoption journey.  We have been blessed with financial support, prayers, and friends & family helping out with the care of our children at home.  We know that all of the help has made it possible for us to bring Julia home.  Thank you!

So, once Tom and Caleb are back in Julia's country, I'm sure they will be updating the blog often.  We will miss them on Christmas, but we know they are bringing home such a beautiful gift with them, Julia.

Please join us in praying for all of families that will be apart this Christmas for many different reasons.  Also, please pray for all the children around the world who wait for a family.  Maybe by next Christmas they will be home with their new Forever Families.
