How has it been two whole months since their plane landed? How has it been two whole months since our family waited with anticipation at the top of the escalators to welcome our sons/brothers home? How has it been two whole months since I first laid eyes on the two sweet faces that were on my heart night and day? ...since I first hugged them? ...since they first walked through the door to their new home, their new family, their new life?? Two months! And what an amazing two months it has been. Ups - Definitely! Downs - Of course! Two months of firsts. For all of us. Immeasurable love. Immeasurable trials. Immeasurable blessings.

The Lord bless you
and keep you; 
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you; 
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26

  1. I have read the boys journey home tonight after seeing Leon's picture on the AdvocateforWC listings, and seeing he had a family. We requested his file when WACAP had it, but as he is older than our oldest son, we felt like we were not in the position to bring him home. As you were finalizing your journey in April, we were officially signing papers to start our journey to China as well. We have 5 children, 3 biological (one boy and 2 girls) and 2 brothers from Ethiopia. We do not yet have a son chosen in China, but I have loved reading about Leon and Joe's path home to LOVE. God Bless, Brooke in California.
