Lord of the Rings

So I don't have time to write this because I need to be packing, sleeping, showering and many other things that I'm forgetting I'm sure but I have to share because we have laughed about it.

BTW, I had to step over the man two more times each time he was in a different position. I slipped twice today, Robin was surefooted and I actually say a local fall. Made my day!

Any way so I'm skyping with Josh and he reassures me that we are almost home. I told him the following which is kinda funny since our friend Caleb Lococo blogged about the same movie and their adoption road to Julia here.

I feel like we are in middle earth. We have fought battles and encountered new species. We have held our ground. We have been away from home for so long. We have prayed. We are tired. We have made new friends. We have eaten strange things. We have explored. We have held onto faith during the uncertain times. We have cried. We have laughed. We have ran, slipped, fallen. We have gone through so much to get to where we are. And we are SO close!! We have one more leg to go and it small compared to the rest of the journey.....Just one plane ride across the pond to home. And yet I feel as though we have come through the black gate and we are looking up at Mount Doom. The last leg. The dreaded plane ride. As I'm saying this Josh is laughing and laughing at my analogy. He said you'll make it and I'll be at the top waiting for you with a big hug. I told him he better be careful I might be a little singed after going through all the lava on the way.

I hope you find the humor in this. We do. We are hoping and praying for tomorrow to be nothing major. And for both boys to sail through it. Thank you for your continued support and your prayers I will let you know how 'Mount doom' goes. LOL :0)


  1. Keep Climbing Autumn!! hehehe

  2. Thanks for all the updates. I can so picture the sleeping man passed out on the stairs. Glad you and Robin and the boys and the stroller can manage to navigate around him- with giggles no less. :) Praying for your final journey. Thanks for posting about the travel times. Praying that you four are all sleeping soundly and arrive well rested- well as well rested as people can be taking 3 flights to get halfway across the globe! Hoping you found meds that work for Yuri. So glad you were able to try it out before the flight.

  3. Oh my gosh! I just love you guys! You are too funny. Now just wait until you're home and you feel like Frodo when he's back in the shire :D

  4. Hi Autumn

    Thinking of you and Robin on the long trip home, but its worth all the stress and tears.

  5. Haha, that is awesome. The good news is; you still have your sense of humor. And, your hair (which I LOVE, btw) is short so it won't get singed. Sweet dreams!

  6. Oh my goodness, that is hilarious! I totally see the analogy. You're so close! You're so close!
    Glory to God for getting you this far. What precious boys you're adding to your family!

  7. I can't wait to see your blog title changed to "We brought our boys home!"
    Praying for you! Blessings! Amy

  8. Finish strong!!! Huge prayers coming your way in the next 36 hours. My heart goes out to Yuri and I really hope he handles the plane alright.
