Teri's thoughts

My thoughts are on my family coming home, but my mind is also having other thoughts. As I posted the picture of Andy on the plane it made me sad in some way to think of him leaving a place that are his roots and home. It is a place that his parents had to leave him due to reasons we can guess but not really answer. It is a place that people took good of care of him. It is a place that is so different than where he is coming to. I SO want him home and to be our son, I do understand that adoption is a word that carries a lot of loss with it as well as a hope for a new beginning. I understand this and probably will more in days to come as our kids ask the questions we are not entitled to answer. I hope that Brian and I understand that we have a responsibility to honor cultures rather they be made by biology or adoption. So from the home front I am excited but posting that picture really made me think!!

You've said it so well. There is loss in adoption but there's so much joy as well. It's not one or the other, it's both. Wishing you a joyful reunion with your boys!

I can relate to you. It was very hard for us to fly out of Gansu as much as we were looking forward to getting home. We are looking forward to the day when we will take him back.
