A lack of posts could only mean one thing. . .

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.
