Meidyn's Journey Home

This is the journey, from beginning to end, of how we got our daughter home. We have not met her, she may not even be born... but she's already found a way into our hearts.

Christmas and stuff!

I can't explain how happy or exhausted I am. I think I forgot how much work babies are and having 2 children is WAY different than having one. Add jet lag, pink eye, Christmas and waking up every 3 hours and you have a barely functioning but completely satisfied mommy. I was in line at the grocery store yesterday and I overheard two women complaining about their children. Both were trying to out do the other with stories of how difficult their child was and how each age was worse than the last. I kept my mouth shut but thought of how truly blessed I was with my two children. I don't know if it was the Christmas spirit that brought on this revelation or that I somehow feel that I appreciate my children more because of the work it took to get them home. I can't explain it but I have the two most incredible children in the world and I would never say to someone to enjoy it now because in 6 months they will be torture. It can be trying, at times, and exhausting but isn't that what parenting is? We had a wonderful Christmas and we are all adjusting as best we can. I am so greatful and want to give hope to all fellow adopting parents that it will happen and be worth it!!

Home at last

Sorry it has taken me so long to post. I came home with pink eye so I have been pretty miserable but it is slowly getting better and I've managed to keep it to myself! The trip was amazing and tiring. I had a chance to look in on most of the children but there are so many there it is hard to keep track of who is who. They are all being well taken care of, the nannies love them and care for them. They even cried when we took Ayana with us. I'll type more later but here are some photos
