Homecoming

We had a wonderful homecoming on Wednesday night. Here is the group...minus the photographer, Cynthia. Thanks for the amazing photos, Cynthia!
Two of three sweet girls...
The first family photo at HOME.
See...she still has that surprised look at times (Julie, you can relate:).
The first time meeting Nana.
First car ride home with the best big brother ever.
It may be impersonal and public, but thank you to everyone who helped us get here. Thanks for prayers and good thoughts, thanks for donation contributions, thanks for being there, and now that we are home thanks for the visits, emails, and for starting a food chain! You know who you are and you will all be thanked personally, but I wanted to tell the world that we are so grateful for YOU.

I was coming here specifically to post: more pictures, please! I am so happy every time I see you four all together, but I actually got a little sad when I noticed that wonderful PDX airport carpet (why do I love it so?). I so wish I could have been there to welcome you guys home. Can't wait to be home!

Rhett looks so sweet Autumn. I bet he did a great job in ET. Can't wait to hear all about it. I hope you guys will get back on the sleep schedule quickly and that Mezmur is doing great!

Autumn and Family,
So glad you guys made it home safely. Once you settle down you'll have to tell me about your trip and how Rhett was holding up. You know, we're thinking about taking Jalen with us once our time comes and him and Rhett are the same age.
Glad to see you all so happy. Mezmur is just simply adorable. Can't wait to see more pics.

Your kids are just too darn cute. That is a classic Mezmur look!! Just a precious baby. And a beautiful picture of Rhett. He has such a relaxed natural smile, like he sure is relieved to be buckled in his car seat, no horns honking...no crazy swerving, on his way home. No street workers---DAN.
It sure is nice to be home isn't it?

She is so gorgeous! Meg says "i love her" and keeps saying Rhett got her in "Eetchilopia."
Congrats, crossing my fingers you are sleeping regularly!

Glad to hear you are back on the ground in PDX! That flight was brutal, wasn't it? Hope Mezmur is adjusting well...it took Adoniyas about 4-5 days to get over the jet lag, but he's now sleeping 11 hour nights with just one feeding wake-up. Not bad! We'll have to catch up sometime after you get settled.

So good to see you home, safe and sound. . . Mezmur just looks like she belongs with you all fitting right in and so great to see you all together. Love to you all. . . . Love me

We're so glad that you're back safe and sound. All that love shines in your children's smiles. Thanks for sharing your journey until we can hear the details first hand. Counting the days. Luv to you all.

What a great job on your blog! Your sentiments come through loud and clear. You are so loved by so many people. My observation of all of you with Mezi is sooo impressive! She has made such a natural connection into our family!

Luv, Nana
