WE ARE HOME!!!

We are all home and doing well. Graeme has met his Granny Mary and Papa Jim and is doing great. He is not a fan of dogs (actually he is terrified so we are grateful for decent weather so they can stay out as he adjusts). We are all exhausted and catching up. I have so much more to post but will take a day or so to just be home with my family and then return to blogging. Thanks so much for all your comments, thoughts and prayers. We appreciate it more than words can say.

Thanks especially to our dear friends Becky, Sarah, Michael, Jonathan, John, Heather and Lily who along with Mom and Jim met us at the airport to greet Graeme as he arrived home. Becky, Sarah and Susan cleaned our home and it was so amazing to come home. Becky also cooked like crazy for us and everything is so delicious. My friend Ann helped stock the fridge with the much needed DIET COKE and Jonathan drove our car home after the long trip. We all feel so loved and special and have heard that there is more to come. We are so lucky to live where our friends are family! Thank you all!!

More to come....LATER!!!

Y'know, I have not used this site before this weekend and have yet to figure out an 'email' option. So, I will just simply add my note here...and I hope that you aren't offended that we have never met!

Congratulations doesn't even seem fitting when you welcome home a new baby--but after reading your blog, I want to wish you the best and know that our family prayed for you tonight and for continued blessings on your family.

I was also wondering if you could tell me which agency you contacted to arrange your adoption?
I have been speaking to one organization and we have been so disappointed. After having our homestudy approved in GA, we moved (military) to another state. I won't go into details here, but let's just say it's been one hassle after another. I have looked at other organizations, but it appears you have recent experience with a wonderful organization. I realize you are busy and don't want to take away from your time with Graeme. Just send me a quick note if you can...and any advice. Our story is very different and is just beginning....

Margaret,

Welcome home! I've been thinking of you, just haven't had time to comment. I hope the jet lag recovery is going well. Sounds like you had quite the "welcome home"!

I hope that Graeme continues to do better each day! And that you are all getting rested up.

Blessings~

Tina

Welcome home! It sounds like you have some amazing friends :o)

My girlfriend's son was terrified of our dog & she really put an interesting perspective on it when she mentioned how for a toddler, a 50lb dog that's eye level to you would kind of be the equivalent to having a small horse in your home. Had never quite thought about it that way, but there is a lot of truth there. I'm sure he'll fall in love with them sooner then later though.
