They are home.

They are wonderful.

Way wonderful.

Of course I have a gob of emotions and things to share with you,
but I will have to save that for later.

But I will tell you that everything is going so smoothly so far
(don't burst my honeymoon bubble!).
Lucy and Macy are doting over Isaiah like you wouldn't believe.
I won't have to lift a finger.
This is going to work out quite nicely.
Macy is being an amazing big sister to Hao Hao
(we will eventually transition his name to either Elijah or Andrew...but for now, it's Hao Hao, pronounced How How).
She is translating, which is SO HELPFUL...I can't even tell you.

My big boys are enjoying their new brothers too.

And as I type this...at 8:30AM...ALL SIX kids are still asleep.
This is going to be easy.
(Again, don't burst my bubble).

But here are the pics we've all been waiting for!












Our new family.

Lucy looks miserable and non-cooperative.
But she wasn't at all...she was completely sweet and loved
every minute.



THANK YOU all for praying.
Thank you, thank you.

God is so good and His faithfulness didn't fail us once.
Not once.

He is so good, I can't even fathom it.



"I will not leave you as orphans,
I will come to you."
