that I’m now busily mothering 3 girls 🙂
I have neglected this blog since Anna arrived. It’s been a whirlwind 10 days and we haven’t had much time to breathe around here. Anna was escorted to Chicago on October 29 and we are enjoying settling in as a family.
There are challenges (the language barrier being the most difficult) but the blessings far outweigh them. The girls are getting along fabulously. We are all getting used to being a family of 5 (the laundry & dishes have increased far more than I imagined!)
God’s faithfulness is amazing to us. During this adoption process, neither Andy nor I were truly convinced the adoption was going to happen — there were so many bumps and so few families who had already done it. So when Anna finally stepped off the plane, I think we were as much surprised as we were excited and relieved!
Now that the process is over, I plan to make the blog public again and I would love to encourage others considering Congo adoption.
