And, Andrea had sooooo many sweet friends there to greet them...and they had on some CUTE shirts:
I loved the fact that Andrea and her family were ALL wearing my sister Kelly's "Change The World For One" t-shirts!! Too neat!!
And, it was such a treat to meet SO many "blog" friends...A HUGE thanks to JULIE from the Flitterbug blog...She not only brought my kids "silly band bracelets", but handed out waters to my kids when they were thirsty, gave out goldfish when they were hungry, cleaned up their spills when LL spilled her water all down her front (on purpose, i might add :) and did it all with a smile on her face and watched her own 3 kids too!! :) So....THANKS Julie for helping out one tired Momma and 5 tired, fussy kiddos at 10 0'clock at night!! We all really appreciate it EVEN IF none of the kids seemed to express it last night :)!!! And, it was great meeting Melissa too from www.needlesslovemore.blogspot.com She is currently adopting a precious baby boy from Uganda!!!! Got to see his pic last night...too cute!!!
I loved finally meeting some of my fellow AGCI families too....So awesome to finally meet in person!!
And, Isaac and LL seemed to hit it off!!! I think he was looking at her in this pic and saying, "Girlfriend...what in the world did your momma put on your head??"
Such a miracle that they came from the exact same orphanage only a year apart in time!!!
Yes, we had lots of tears and fussy kids at the airport...and I'm NOT sure we quite lived up to the expectations some might have of our lovely little family...BUT...through it all...there was still time for a little LOVE!!! :)
Such a HUGE fun group to welcome them home...So fun to be a part of it!!!
And, one last pic before we hit the road HOME!! I love these homecomings more than anything....I looked at hubby and said, "Aren't you ready for a little "Isaac" in our home?" I just got that "uncomfortable" laugh as he announced it must be time to head on back to Nashville!!! :) Oh, well...the kids are on him EVERY DAY about it...he can't hold out too much longer!!!! :)
So.....WELCOME HOME BABY ISAAC!!! What a TRUE blessing you already are to your family, community and friends!!! May God continue to bless you and may HE USE YOU TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO SAY "YES" TO ADOPTION!!
**Happy Saturday to you all, kj
