We made it!

It's 3:30am Texas time, and after 30+ hours of travel, I'm crawling into my oh-so-comfy bed. Hallelujah, we're home!!!

5 of our kiddos stayed up to greet us and visit into the wee morning hours, I got to rock Selah to sleep in her middle-of-the-night wakefulness (who, BTW, was not happy about her mommy leaving her and she showed her feelings to me clearly!), and now my mommy heart is overflowing with joy and gratefulness. I'm so thankful for each of my precious lovies. They are such blessings.

Many thanks to Stephanie for picking us up at the airport at such a late hour (as well as filling in as Mom, Dad, teacher, ranch foreman, and chauffeur in our absence), and many thanks to everyone who abundantly fed our kiddos while we were away! The meals were a great blessing to our kiddos; they've talked and talked about all of the fabulous food!

We will be in Texas for 10 days, then we'll head back to Ukraine for another ~10 days of paperwork and then Conner and Cooper will come HOME!!!

Please continue to pray for God's protection of Cooper and Conner in our absence. Matt and I could also use prayers for our adjustment to the 8 hour time difference. That's one of he hardest things about international travel for me. My brain and body just don't seem to want to give up and/or gain 8 hours!!!

Thank you all for your support and prayers. We are grateful!
