Thank you all sooooooooooooooooo much for the prayers on our trip. It all meant so much to know we had the support and encouragement from our friends and family. Needless to say, we are so happy to be home and we are trying to adjust to our new family. All has gone really well. The boys are doing great, the girls are doing very well and we are tired.
There are pictures to come but for now, we are trying to get settled, unpack, get over our colds/sickness from traveling, read about 1,000 emails (yes...seriously I have about 700 left to read - it will take me awhile), Chuck is back to work today on a big video shoot and we are finding our new normal.
On some positive notes, the boys are eating and sleeping well. That is one of the biggest challenges for transition. Tyson Fikadu's scabies are doing much better. Poor little guy. We have slept through the night since we got home (YIPPEE). No one is on a hunger strike and holding out for only Ethiopian food (good thing because I am too tired to try to make new recipes yet).
Both boys are taking naps each day (must be some healing going on during that sleep).
Thank you for the support and love. We had a huge crowd at the airport to welcome us home and it was so special. I have to post those pictures later, but for now go and check them out on Kristi and Amy's blog. The love and support mean so much, even my sister flew all the way here from California to show her support. Thank you all. Now if I can just shake this sickness, fight the jet lag and get used to toddlerhood and changing diapers, I would be set. =)
Dear Sweet Peas,
I am so grateful to be your mama. To have you come to me for support and love and nurturing. I am so grateful for how God brought our family together by His perfect design, may we always be a positive example to others who are looking at our family.
