Today is the Day

It is the dayI have waited for for the last 1 1/2 years. No matter how my kids have come to me each of these four days I hold close to my heart. I can't wait to see our little man and give him a kiss. We are all anxious to have our Daddy and husband back. I made it through 2 1/2 weeks of single parenting and Riley even wrote his Dad in China and told him he was having a great time! My heart thinks of all of those families in the military separated for long periods of time and the sacrifices this entails. Riley is ready to play with his brother, while Brianna would like to "mother him" . It is Katie I worry the most about. I used to worry about her attaching to me which seems frivolous now since attach may not even be the word for it. I pray for as I know this is going to be so hard. We are so ready to be whole and to love that little boy that God has worked into our hearts and souls. We will not forget the kids that were left behind and now that our adoption journey and family are complete we hope and pray that adoption moves quickly for those children who wait until their countries can take care of them. I will always be passionate about adoption and figure out ways to work for it in my life above and beyond my 4 (wow!) children.

Just a couple more hours!!! WE are waiting!!

I will post more as soon as I get my camera back and we are all home at last

Love Teri
