43 hours and we are home!!

Oh my goodness and it feels so good. The worst part of the whole ordeal was the hopeless feeling and the uncertainty. By the grace of God we got out on one of the only flights that left D.C. today. This was after sleeping in the airport. The boys were not convinced that this whole America deal is a better deal. They are now decompressing. We got in today at 3:30 after going to Chicago.

Thank you for your prayers and for all the support from all you whom I never met. God has been so good to us through all of this. Thank you for all of you who were so willing to go out in a blizzard to help us. To those who offered your homes to us even though you don't know us. I feel the love of the family of God. I love you all and I'm SO happy to be home. I have a few pics from the airport I will try to upload later.

We were so blessed to run into so many angels along the way that scavenged the planes, the terminals and even the lost baggage claim for baby food. For those who brought us pillows, blankets, milk and water. Most of them were ground crew walking by on their breaks. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from those of you who offered your help (you know who you are :o) sorry I haven't replied to your emails) and from those of you who helped us in the airports. We are truly blessed and I'm so excited to watch these boys blossom.

oh yeah, and thanks for listening to my whine. I am so glad God is still faithful when I lose it.

  19. God is still faithful when we lose it. So well said. He is ever faithful & it is so humbling given how we all whine, complain, and distrust Him. He is so good.
    Many many blessings on your babymoon. Enjoy it. It will get easier and easier from this time on. :D

Praise God, and prayers for you all. Can't wait to read the next chapter in your journey. Kiss those sweet precious angels from us all the way across the country. Our paths may never cross, but your angels will always have a place in our hearts!!

  23. Thank you for taking the time to let us know you all made it home especially after the last few days - you all must be physically and emotional exhausted. Thinking and praying for each one of you and couldn't be happier that you are home.

  29. I cried and cried when I read you have safely made it home. I have been praying for these boys since Adeye first posted about them. You met my brother and sister-in-law in country when they were there to meet their daughter, Alice. What a wonderful coincidence that they got to meet the family who get to love on these two sweet boys. Joyful, joyful!

  31. Been following your blog for a while, and was hoping that you could help me to put a call to pray for a little boy. Details are here: http://upthehillbothways.blogspot.com/2011/01/prayer-request-4-years-old-suffered.html
    Please spread the word, don't have to link to my blog at all, but if you could find prayer warriors for this boy - God will know where they need to go.
