YOur first moment together would bring anyone to tears. The whole experience is a heart tugger. I can't wait to hear every last detail. The road was long but the rewards will be endless. Home at last! What a beautiful baby and a wonderful family. I'm sure glad I get to be part of it all.Luv ya lots.

Mezmur looked like she was waiting to be in your arms as much as you couldn't wait to have her in your arms. . . A beautiful picture, it had to be a wonderful moment. A picture is worth a thousand words and in this case a thousand blessings. She absolutely looks full of joy in these pictures and I can't wait to meet her. Tell Rhett that gramps is sure to love Mezmur "more then her picture" when he gets to meet her. What a priceless comment. . .

So glad you are home safe and sound with your expanded family. Mezmur has so, so much to look forward to. . . as do we all. Thank you from apart of my heart that I truly believe has never been touched. Take care, missing you all and can't wait to meet you MEZMUR! Love to ALL!!!!

Does it feel like a dream? She is so wonderful!! I can't believe she's home!!
I can't wait to hear and see more. The good and the bad. I know it's a hard country to visit but I want to hear everything you want to share. But I also understand if you don't want to put her down long enough to type.
Love you so much and thank you, Jesus, for delivering Mezzie safely home.

Nana said...

What precious pictures of a precious family. Holding Mezmur in my arms last night, I felt a special spirit in that little girl which has uplifted my heart to heights I did not realize was possible.

Love is a wonderful thing!

Love, Mom/Nana

HOW DID I MISS THIS! I HATE that I am the 31st person to post! Ach!

I'm ready to jump on a plane tomorrow for Portland.

Ted and Lori said...

Just went back and looked at all these pictures up close. I am so beyond happy for you guys. I just can't get over seeing her WITH you. She's really real? For reals? When can I hold her? When can we babysit? And Rhett just looks pleased as punch to be big brother, and you're all so gorgeous.

Autumn we are just so happy for your family. "Happy" doesn't seem to do justice to the look on your face holding her. What amazing eyes! I can't wait to hear everything about her!
