Ok, I stole that title from a friend. But no other title really captured what I have been feeling.

First of all, jet-lag. It is real. It is UGLY. There were several nights that the boys woke up every hour on the hour thinking it was time to get up. Combined with my insomnia, it was rough!

Our bodies are pretty well switched over now. Saturday, we were able to have our first family fun day at home. We slept in a little, picked out pumpkins, went for a walk. So nice! Then last night we went trick or treating. The little ones may not be able to speak much English, but they were able to get their point across that they wanted MORE CANDY!

Now that we have the “twins” home, it feels like they have been here the whole time. It is such a bizarre feeling. Like our trip to China was a dream. I have to constantly remind myself that they are new here. They are such a blessing to our family, and all three of our boys are miracles in their own special way.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for all your love and prayers along the way. They definitely were/are felt.



Sunday morning after we came home

Picking pumpkins

Ghostbusters and Slimers!

Hebrews 4:14-16 NLT So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

    So good to hear that you’re home. Now that we’re all in the states (including the boys), I would love to email back and forth with you. Once the boys come home, it becomes legal for us to talk. So if you’re up for it, please email me at I would love to hear from you.
