Red couch and consulate...saying goodbye

Our American citizen enjoying more catsup

I push and he holds dads' hand

Mark and his precious babies

Sweet Eden

The boys tryin' to get more camera time

This is the best we could get

Wonderful Hirum and Eli

Pretty Yao Yao

Ren showing his moves

A partial family photo

Today we took the oath at the consulate. I get teary when doing it, to know that nothing can take him away. We also took red couch pictures. I would rather herd cats. Kevin did surprisingly well. He is really beginning to love his little playmates. It makes me feel better about getting him home with Claire. We then said goodbye to travelmates...always bittersweet. I know we will keep in touch, but you seem so isolated here. We all truly know how the other feels. It will feel so good to get back home. I may not let my girls go for a week.

What wonderful photos. I love seeing the families together and the little ones happy and feeling okay about what is going on in their world. I have loved following your story.

What about him coming home to biggest sister? Jk. And I hope that you mean not letting us go to SCHOOL for a week. Jk (maybe). 3 MORE DAYS! (FOR US) Hope that you will hurry up and come home already! AND CHECK YOUR EMAIL!


Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
