Homeward Bound

We got the call today that we are clear to go home! Woohoo! Praising God! If you all remember, I asked for your prayers in getting down here and I'm asking now for your prayers in getting home. Pray for smooth travel and TWO happy girls.

I'm so excited to get home and see my Zoelle. This is the longest I have ever been away from her, and only the second time I ever have. I'm also excited to meet my new niece India who was born July 8th, the same day that we got our baby girl. How fun to have little girl cousins so close in age.

Monday at midnight is when the 10 day waiting period ends and I am praying that all goes well. Please continue to pray for "J". I know that right now she is feeling at peace with her decision, but is also sad. I've been reflecting alot in the last few days and my heart is really aching right along with her. Yet, all the while rejoicing as I have another daughter. Pray for me as my emotions are sort of all over the place. On Tuesday, we will be announcing our new daughter's name and I can't wait. It will feel so real and final then.

Also, if you would all pray that our adjustment period at home is as smooth as can be I'd appreciate it. I'd like to get Meridian back on a schedule as she has been pretty "off" this week on both her emotions and schedule. I also want the transition for Z to go well, so please pray it does. Then there is just the transition of a new baby, laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc. that if I start to think of it all, I get overwhelmed. Please just be in prayer for me.

Alright, I'm off now as I have an early flight to catch HOME! Can't wait to introduce this little girl to you all! Thank you for all the prayers and much love!!


  1. So excited for all of you! We will be praying the day of travel and flight goes smoothly. That your daughters will be happy and sleep when they need to sleep. Looking forward to meeting your new daughter!! :)

  2. I've been praying for you and will continute to do so. Congrats on going home with your new addition! I can't wait to find out her name!

  3. Angie and Kathleen-Thank you both so much for your encouragement and prayers. We are home and tired but doing well! :)
