We're Back!!!

Want to know what we have been up to in the last 2 weeks?? Well, here you go. Click HERE. I took the password off of all of the posts. It has been a VERY long and hard 2 weeks, but we are recovering and making all kinds of progress. Happy Thanksgiving. I have an insane amount of things to be thankful for. I posted everyday of our adventure, so if you are interested, you can really get the full story. I look forward to posting everything on this blog again.

Congratulations and Welcome Home! I'm a longtime Lucy follower and I'll admit I've been patiently waiting and was SO excited to see your post...I just spent the last 2 hrs catching up to speed on your journey. Annie is beautiful and Lucy is making a pretty amazing transition into being a big sister! Keeping your family (of 4!) in my prayers for smooth transitions and steady progress.

Oh wow! I've been reading your blog for a long time now, and I was SO excited to read about Annie. I serioualy cried throughout the whole thing. Congratulations and a half. Seriously wonderful news :)

Holy cow! Never did I imagine you were traveling to pick up another gorgeous daughter. I figured you were either pregnant or planning to adopt another baby. I'm so happy for you all! Congratulations!

Welcome home!

Denise said...

Congratulations! I used to read your blog and pop in every once in a while but I haven't been able to spend much time on the computer lately. Your pictures are always beautiful.
Your girls are precious and gorgeous! What a blessing!
My daughter turned 9 mos. old while in VN, and she, too, had a horrible adjustment. (My friend Geneva posted a comment about her on one of your entries.) Reading your journal brings back so many memories of our challenging time. My little one just turned 2 and she is an amazing child. We still have some issues but I wouldn't trade her for the world. The difficulties we had in the beginning just make me appreciate our time together even more. In fact, I never thought I would say this but I wish I could adopt a few more little ones.
If you ever want to be in touch (I know you're busy though), my email is camsokly@gmail.com.
Blessings to your family! God is good!

Wow Many Congratulations! However I must tell you that there is another Vietnam Annie here in the US. We adopted our Annie in January 2007-you had just brought home Lucy when we got on our plane.
My poor Annie is not blessed with a Mom who is a great photographer or blogger, but I will find a way to send you some photos of her. Lucy reminds me so much of her, and we have loved following your blog.
May God Bless your family!

I cant wait to follow your blog and watch little Annie blossom in your love!
