How We Are Adjusting

We have been home for 4 days. We received the "Welcome Home" of a lifetime. Flowers, meals, cards and hugs! We had a reunion with Sam that left us all in tears. We have almost finished unpacking, Keith is back to work, and our regular "everyday" life is beginning to resume. Still, we are missing Lucy terribly. I think about her all the time, and I replay moments we had together in my mind trying to keep them fresh. It was only 5 days ago that we were holding her, but it feels like a lifetime ago, which only adds to my longing to be back with her. On our last night in Guatemala, I cried and cried that I didn't want to leave. I could have stayed... if only I could have had Sam with me. It has been wonderful to be home in so many ways, but I could get on a plane tomorrow just to kiss that sweet girl.
We really are okay, and we are using this time to enjoy Sam, and to jump into getting ready to bring our girl home. We are getting ready to take on the nursery and thinking about registering for a few things... these are little signs of our faith that she will be coming home... soon and forever. We have to get ready!

That was my pull too. I couldn't take the girls from home, school, life here. SO, we stuck out that long, hard wait.

She will come home soon. It is time to get ready.

Registering? So exciting. You are on the home stretch now. One last sprint to the finish line. You can do it!! We're right there cheering you on.

DAMN! Meant to send flowers too. Whoops!!

The wait is horrible but just keep your eye on what is waiting for you.

Leaving is hard, but keep thinking about all those precious moments with Lucy...and put her pictures all over your house:0) Hope she is home soon!

Oh I know!! I know! It completely stinks wanting to be in two places at the same time. Get busy on that nursery and buy, buy, buy lots of clothes!! She'll be home SOON!!!

What was it we said before? We could sell our houses and cars to make it work...right?? Ha! The wait is soooo hard, but it's worth it. That sweet giril will be home soon.
