For those of you that keep up with the other adoption blogs: yesterday Russ, Eliot and I made our way to the airport to welcome Rebecca, Shannon, and new American Citizen Owen to St. Louis. (my camera decided not to function yesterday or you'd see the pics! Sorry!) What a great opportunity. That may sound silly but I got to be on the other side of the whole 'airport scene' yesterday and I loved it. So, a huge congrats to the new family settling into their new life this week!
As we turned the corner to get to the hallway to get to the gates, I found myself surprisingly emotional to be there. I hadn't thought of this happening! I passed it off as being excited for Rebecca and her family (which I was) but I know there was more to it. Not only are we home, but we're settled (sort of). I just was happily and emotionally surprised at this unexpected chance to reflect. God is so good. We're home and have an amazing story to cherish of how Mr. E came to be.
Welcome home friends!!!
