Sure, this is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I miss home and my kids so much it physically hurts but because of Colleen and Frank I can remain focused on Gods plan without worrying for one second that my world at home is falling apart. As a matter of fact, tonight Jack told me that we didn't need to hurry home and that the house was much cleaner than it usually is. Nice, thanks Buddy! I love you Sissy and I honestly don't know if we could have done this without you!
There are a couple of other people that without them I don't know where we'd be.. Grandma & Grandpa Herrington, thank you for filling in the gaps with carpools,dog sitting and taking care of all the yard work! Carole and Paula, what can I say???? You are the best friends EVER! Thank you for being my kids second Mother's and loving them while we're gone:) Shelly, you know how much we love you! Thank you for stepping in happily for weekend duty! The kids are in absolute Heaven when they are with you! Last but not least, we need to tell our kids, Katie, LeeAnn, Abby and Jack how proud we are of them and how they are doing such an awesome job helping out while we're gone!
Lee and I love you all and can't wait for you to meet Olivia! As soon as you see this most perfect,amazing gift from God, I guarantee all the past weeks craziness will soon be forgotten!
A few pictures from today's visits:
I tell ya, this girl is freaking hysterical with all her crazy faces!!!
Hard to see in this picture, but she is actually up on all fours which is a huge step for her!! After the first day we met her that seemed months away at least...She is going to blow us all away!
So in love with each other!
And..... I'm done with you people! Take me back to my Nannies and my food! She is so happy to go back with her sweet Nannies by the end of our visits. It broke my heart at first but she loves them. They have been her comfort for the past 14 months. It will be very bittersweet leaving there with her on Gotcha Day... It will however, be a glorious day, that's for sure!
