Finally

You have all been so patient!! I know you have been wanting to see pictures of our family now that Noah is home. I don't have time to post much other than to say we are having a great time and things are going really well!! Here are a few teasers of some of the things we have been doing. I hope to post pictures soon of each event, but who has time to be on the computer with 6 kids. So far, not me.

Camp Meemaw's!!


Alexis and Noah at the park!

Our boys!!


Count them! That would be all SIX of our children at the St. Louis Zoo!! It feels so good to have them all together!!

Final days..

It was so good to know these were his final days in Haiti. I'm sure he will visit someday, but you know what I mean.

So handsome!


Last day of school!


Making cupcakes with Bethany for his going away "party."

Noah with his good friend Jimmy! Jimmy was very instrumental in Noah's return to the Orphanage. We will be forever grateful for the many phone calls, visits, and talks!!


Going home day!

A look back....

Things are going great here! We are all thrilled to have Noah home and continue to find ourselves looking at him and thinking, "really?!" I wanted to take a moment though to share two video clips that I think you will enjoy.

As many of you know, it had been a year and five months since I had seen Noah and held him in my arms. Since January 9th, I had been aching to go to Haiti and be reunited with our son. I was finally scheduled to lead a trip down on March 8th and was ecstatic to finally know that I would see him. Long story short, we were blessed to have our visa appt three days prior to this date and then knew I would not only be seeing him, but bringing him home.

The team decided to go to the guest house first and drop off their bags and then we would travel to the O. This seemed like the smart choice though my heart wanted to scream, "No, I need to go see my son. Forget your bags!" Sorry guys! ; ) Well, thanks to Megan, Colleen, Jimmy and Junior, I didn't have to wait. Thanks guys! For a girl who loves surprises, this couldn't have been a better gift!!

The following takes place between 11:30 and 12:30pm.

FLIGHTS BOOKED!!!!!!!

We are flying home on Tuesday! We will arrive in Evansville at 9:40pm(assuming everything goes as planned and flights are not delayed). Anyone that wants to welcome us home is welcome to be there!! This is one party we have waited a long time for!! I cannot wait to be on the airplane, look over and see our son sitting next to me.

Guess what!

VISA APPROVED!!!!!!!!

They have the receipt to pick it up tomorrrow!! The Lord is so good! He is so faithful!! He has blessed me beyond these 26 letters I have to work with!

I'm still looking at flights and determining what is the best plan. I will be flying home either Monday or Tuesday. Please pray we are able to arrange the flights without any problems!!

Finally....

I will hold our son in my arms again! It has been so long and I am more than ready!! I am scheduled to lead a trip that leaves this weekend. So instead of wondering each day when our visa appointment will be I've decided to avert my attention to the fact that I will be seeing, holding, and loving on our boy no later than Sunday!! Now don't you think for one moment that I'm not still praying daily for that appointment, but I'm thankful to have this other option to rejoice over right now!

We are praying his appointment will be this week, but until we hear about it I will be packing and getting so excited to finally go see our son!
