HOME!!!

I truly can't say enough how much we've witnessed that God truly designed children to be in families!!!


Wow... we've been home for 1 week already! To say this week has been hard would be a complete understatement, especially when you throw in some jetlag. However, the Lord has been SO good and as always, has shown Himself faithful! As we work through the tantrums, biting, kicking, etc, we are truly starting to see a glimpse of who this sweet boy is and the pain he's endured!

Have been so blessed to witness so many 'firsts' this week like going down a slide, brushing teeth, and I could go on for pages!

Had a wonderful morning, including going to a park where it was just the three of us. It's amazing how spending time on swings and slides can help you to visibly see a toddler who has a hard time communicating with you putting their trust in you! Came home for naptime and after some screaming, Aweke looked into my eyes for the first time while I sang to him. It was such a sweet moment that only the Lord could orchestrate. Feeling so refreshed by this and excited to see God's plans for Aweke's life!

  4. Congratulations to all three of you! When we first brought our boys home (at two years old), my world was turned upside down. It was hard...on all of us. Our boys had suffered so much, but God has been so good, and we were so blessed to be part of their healing. Blessings to you as you watch God heal your son's heart. He is so beautiful!
