Back In The Swing Of Things......

Life did not stop around here for me to adjust back to this time zone, but my body has finally caught up with my kids and the clock. Tuesday morning started with a John David's end of the year conference and did not stop there, Madeline's therapy and speech, John David's 5th grade 5k, swim practice blah blah blah.....life in general and all good. I am so proud of my family for making the best of it while I was gone. Hank did not have a nervous break down and  even went to the grocery once:). The kids did not scare Lauren away but I'm sure she needed many naps to catch up this week!! And Gardner, best big brother ever! To say I'm blessed by all everyone did while I was away is an understatement.....I could not have gone without their willingness and most importantly without Hank's blessing....all a gift.

a few pics:)

and waiting...

lap two

seriously cracks me up....
so hard for me to grasp who she in now
after seeing her beginnings....
God has held her little soul tightly
look at her crazy joy!

really....she is too funny
John David makes me laugh....
I know he is thinking "are you really taking that picture with Janie acting like that?"



        I have not been able to truly process all I experienced while in China.....it will come. I have moments that my heart stops a little when I think back on the children still there, the not knowing what will become of them. I look at my sweet Janie and see what a family has done for her and hope and pray that the others will be as blessed as she is and we are. Before last week I was keenly aware of God's hand in bringing us to Janie..... but now I am amazed because I saw and know it was even bigger than I could have imagined or can possibly know......

Psalm 147:5
Great is our Lord and abundant in power, his understanding is beyond measure.

  1. Perhaps it is too personal to share, but I wonder about Janie's reaction to your visit to her sweet foster parents.
