And then we were HOME!!!!

Yes, we are home!  Praise the Lord!  I am sorry I did not update you all sooner!  Thank you for all your prayers!  I felt myself carried in prayer the whole way home and I am so grateful.  Eliisa did AWESOME!!!  We had no problems when we went through immigration and the officer who handled our case was by far the kindest officer that I have met in this entire journey or during any other dealings I have with any government entity!  All glory be to our Lord!  I will fill you in on all the details very soon and upload some pictures.  Our wonderful friend Gretchen and her son Ari were at the airport to capture our homecoming in pictures.  We are so BLESSED!  Please keep Gretchen and her husband Craig in their prayers as they are about to travel for their second trip to have court for their son, Ian.  He is also in Eastern Europe, but in a country that is MUCH more difficult to adopt from than where Eliisa was.  You can follow their journey, here.  :)  More to come soon!  Thank you for all your prayers!!!  Keep the coming as we are adapting to our new life at home.  Right now, we are "baby proofing" on a whole new level.  :) 


  1. Oh, praise God! I prayed and prayed while you traveled home. I am so blessed to hear it went well. See you soon!
