Oh what a glorious Morning...

We got home late lastnight...and stayed up late. .... Friends and family were at the airport to greet us..which was so special! Olivia ran to hug Mary and Anthony...Nanny and Papa...and friends with signs and balloons welcoming her home. (Thank you Donna, Heather and Joe)... and a big banner at our house..that we did not see until this morning.

I woke up at 6 am this morning, just pinching myself. :) all my kids home under one roof! I made a little breakfast....and we all sat down, with peaceful worship music on. It was a glorious morning. We went to church, even though I thought we would not, but we were all awake.

Olivia loves to read the words on the big screen in English, and I could hear her singing "Even so, come Lord Jesus Come." She told me, "Mom, me Orthodox." :)

She went to children's church with her brothers...and I sat next to her. then we went home...Olivia and I were both so tired...we took a 5 hour nap!!!!

But we are home...and our life starts....and I am so thriled. I just want to help any family on their let me know...if you have questions and I will tell you the little I know.

I will post some of our photos...I went back and added a couple to the post before...and will add another post later tonight, of just check back.

Thank you to everyone who prayed this one through for us...from beginning to end..... after my photo post...I plan to just keep up the other blog. I am going to print this one out, for Olivia to keep...but will not be updating it, I think...since she is NOW part of We are Family!!!

Blessings to girl is HOME!


  1. YAY! Congratulations!!! I never comment...but I've been following along and this entry made my day!!!!!!! So thankful that you finally have all your babies under one roof!!!!! (P.S. Did you mean to say in that last sentence "since she is NOW part"??? I thought maybe that was a typo;)

  2. So happy for your family! I remember Mame well from our time in Ethiopia picking up our son in Sept. '08 and our daughter in July '09. It is wonderful to see her beautiful smile, she looks so happy. My daugher Tenaye remembers her well and talks about how she would fix her hair. Glad you are back safely, I know you will be happy to be settled in.
