Home


We are home, though we have some recovering to do as jet lag and bad colds are lingering. We have some cultural recovery to do as well, wondering and wrestling with what "normal" looks like now that we have experienced Ethiopia. The world has changed for me, and looking into the eyes of my dear boy will ever remind me of a hurting, hungry people. And so, we are quiet for a bit here, praying for wisdom to know how to live now and thankful for the welcoming and caring hands of family that have helped ease us back home.


God is good always, and Moses is one of His greatest gifts...

Welcome home!! He is a doll. Hoping for a quick physical recovery and that you can find peace in your wrestle with two worlds...

Welcome home. I know exactly what you mean, it's the juxtaposition that's so tough.

i can relate 110% to what you are feeling. i cannot recommend highly enough for you to read the book 'dangerous surrender' by kay warren. read it now. it will help soooo much as you learn how to transition back. i promise you will thank me :)

Welcome home...I know exactly how you are feeling right now...the jetlag, trying to find that new "normal" in your lives, all of it. Ethiopia is a breathtaking experience...we loved it there...it definitely changed how we view the world around us.

Sitting with you, holding your sweet babe and hearing him giggle...there truly are no words in my vocabulary that would speak what my heart is feeling.
Thank you Father for bringing Moses home.

Much love,
The three of us

Oh my goodness, he looks like a different boy! Look at the light in his eyes. Missing you guys already and hoping our reunion is sooner than later. We are still not transitioned and are wrestling as well with the injustice. Hit me hard today. Thinking of you...
