There's No Place Like Home




We arrived home safe and sound on Sunday evening right on time. The flights were long, but everyone did great. It's amazing what a little Benadryl can do (per our doctor's instructions).

We were so happy to see so many people meet us at the airport. It was sooo good to see familiar faces. Jaxon was a bit overwhelmed, and even began to tear up at one point. Drew was also a bit overwhelmed but didn't take long to warm up to everyone.

Both boys are doing great and are becoming more and more comfortable with their new home. Drew has had no problems jumping right into things. Jaxon has surprised both of us and is also getting into the swing of things.

I would love to tell you more (especially since we now have normal internet), but I have finals this week, two tests and a paper to write by Firday so I will have to wait until after that to go into further detail. I cannot wait until this week is over and I can really begin enjoying our new boys, being home, and becoming a family of 8.

Welcome home! Such a sigh of relief to be home now. I too am excited to see your boys home, adjusting and having fun. I will pray specifically for Jaxon as he's had SO many huge changes...from being 'matched' not long ago to now. Then all those hormones of a normal teenage boy....yikes! What a blessing and an encouragement your family has been to watch!

Welcome Home!! The post brought tears to my eyes to hear that Jaxon was so moved by the homecoming group to welcome you. Sounds like a tender hearted young man....
Be blessed, study and finish the course, and I am looking forward to more pictures and your updates.
