We're home!!!!

We are finally home from China!! We got home on Saturday, March 10th and have spent the past several days trying to get Elizabeth to adjust to our time zone. Bless her heart, she was ready to play at 3:00 in the morning!! She's been doing better, though, and I'm sure will be sleeping through the night soon. :)

I've missed my blogging friends and hope to catch up with everyone. I have been so very blessed with such wonderful blogs to learn from. I'm not sure how often I will be able to post, but I will definitely share what the Lord is teaching me in the areas of homekeeping and motherhood when He leads.

This picture is the first one I took of Elizabeth when we arrived home. She fell asleep in the car on the way home from the airport and I just hated to wake her up. She looks so sweet in her pink flowery outfit.



This picture shows Elizabeth's personality the best!!! She is a very happy 10 month old little girl and is full of life!!! She is such a blessing and we are so very thankful that the Lord has chosen her for our family. God is GOOD!!!

Oh, I have tears in my eyes! She is absolutly beautiful!

I have been enjoying your blog for awhile now without leaving any comments. I just want to share that while you were gone the Lord called us to adopt. We are adopting from Haiti. The Lord has been amazing in confirming His will for our family. I have started a new adoption blog...please stop by whenever you might get a free moment.

I am so incredibly happy for you! God bless your sweet family as you adjust to life at home!

She's beautiful! My husband's brother and his family adopted their youngest daughter from China in 2001. I can't believe she has been part of our family for almost 6 years already.

Mrs U,

I'm so glad you are back safe and sound. I did not realize the time went by so quickly (although probably not for you:) and just found through Tammy's blog that you are back.

What a great blessing Elizabeth will be to you; the Lord is so good!

All of life's richest blessings,

Trixie
