You have been shown these things that you might know the Lord is God besides him there is no other.

Home Sweet Home

My heart is full!
(And I am still wearing the clothes I slept in last night.)
(This may be the new norm as I learn to mother two littles at once.)
Anna Mei is already sleeping through the IL night!
She took a walk in the wagon to the park, 
is sitting in the high chair eating American food, 
and walks around like she has lived here her entire life!

She and Jillian are learning to coexist.
At times, this has been hard.
BUT it is a good hard!

This morning I am finishing this post.
I brushed my teeth today and even got to shower.
(For those of you who have been doing two kids or more forever, you can laugh at me.)
We took a walk to the post office for stamps,
played in the backyard,
have done laundry,
and enjoyed eating at the table together.
I have changed seven diapers already today
(two of which were dirty)
this momma is one happy lady.
At the park, Anna Mei followed Jillian around like a little elf doing everything she did.
They were jammed in the tunnel and kissed.
My heart these two were meant for each other.
They are so good for one another already.
I was made for this.
This is beautiful!
Truly beautiful!


  1. Yeah for time to brush teeth a take a shower! :) Thanks for posting and giving us a glimpse of your new normal.

  2. I've been looking for your "we're home" post! So happy for you all and we'll be praying for you as you settle in. Thanks for sharing; it really gives my DH and I hope that there truly is a light at the end of this adoption tunnel - the waiting is hard!
