We're Home!

After many grueling hours on a plane or in an airport, all 8 of us are finally home. We had a wonderful trip with our whole family and we loved every minute of having us all together for this once in a lifetime experience. It was a precious time of bonding and seeing the beautiful country where two of our daughters were born.

Hannah and Abekeya are adjusting well (some days are better than others) and we're all learning how we fit together in our new lives as a family of 8. Please continue to pray for us - although this seems like the ending, it's really just the beginning. Pray specifically that Chris and I will have the patience we need to work through the frustrating times. Pray for the girls that they will develop the trust that every child needs to have with their parents and pray for our other children that they will not feel displaced or jealous throughout these changing times in our family.

Here are a few pictures of our new family. I will also do a seperate post on some of the beautiful sites we saw on our trip.



  1. Praise GOD!!
    Your family has been in our thoughts and prayers the past few weeks, and we are rejoicing at all that God has brought you through! We will continue to pray for all of you as you are adjusting and growing together! Blessings to you and your family this Christmas!
