We're Home

Sorry for the belated note, but we are home. We arrived fairly late on Thursday evening and were met by some friends at the airport. There were gifts for the kids and hugs galore. We really appreciate everyone that came out to see us, knowing full well it was a school night and late - but we do appreciate it. Our friends were so kind to send groceries to last us a few days and then we have had several REALLY good meals! Thank all of you!!!

Also, thanks to everyone who sent the kindest emails and sweet notes to our blog. My apologies for not being able to answer each and every one but it just seemed like we were on the go the whole time. I finally got around to reading up on my favorite blogs late last night and hopefully will have some time to send some notes out this afternoon.

Just wanted everyone to know how much we appreciate our friends here locally as well as all my bloggy friends! It's too funny how these relationships develop online and then you feel so close to people. I had met a family online from Kansas and it just so happened we were in China at the same exact time. There's a funny store to tell there too but I'll have to share that later. But the point is, it felt like meeting up with old friends because of us getting to know one another prior to arriving in China. They have the kindest and sweetest spirit and just a beautiful family.

so glad you made it home safely. We were sad we didn't catch you to say "see you later" not "goodbye... we look forward to the time we can meet again! It was such a blessing to meet you and get to know your wonderful family. You are in our prayers as you experience with us the joy and tears of adding an other little one through adoption!
Prayers & a big hug to you!
Blessings,
Gayly

So glad to hear that you made it home safely and your friends were there! What would we ever do without friends, eh!

Take care and hope the jet lag goes away quickly.
