Comments Needed!

Everyone who has time, could you please leave me comments? I am keeping things positive on my blog but, of course, there are plenty of reasons why this is a TOUGH trip. So, your comments are a BIG lift & encouragement to me - like a life line, kind of. So,if you have a minute, your words are meaning a whole lot to me these days.

Thanks! :)

Hi Patty!
We are all missing you and Mark at Gym & Swim. We all get caught up on what is happening with you and your new "complete" family when we all get together. We can't wait to have all of you home and get things settling in to find your new "normal" !!
Thanks for keeping us updated. It means more than you know to us back in the USA, praying for all of you!!!

Hi Patty!! I am reading the posts everyday and thinking of you guys all the time. Please be encouraged!! We love you and miss you. Kevin and I are in prayer for you. We both cried when we read the poem you posted. Thank you for sharing your journey with us thru this blog. Give all of your boys a hug from the Hair family and know that we cannot wait to see you and meet the new members of your family. We love you dear, dear friends.

Patty and John,
We are praying for you and checking for updates daily. Thanks so much for sharing this journey so poignantly with your words and pictures. It's ok to share the hard stuff too. I'm so thankful that you are all there together. And thankful to know that God is holding you closely as you bring these boys home. The fatherless have always held a special place in God's heart. He will carry you through all the ups and downs to come. I just wish there were something more tangible I could do to help--you guys have been God's hands and feet to me more times than I can count. I miss being closer. When I read of your return plans, I thought to myself, "I wonder if they're flying in to Charlotte. Maybe I could hop up there to welcome them home--oh, wait, I don't live in South Carolina anymore..." Prayer is definitely more powerful than anything I could do for you, but I'm just a "do-er" by nature. Love you guys--all five! They're simly beautiful! Can you bring home a couple little princesses for me? : ) My sister and I are taking bets on how many you'll stow away in your luggage! : )

Laura,
You've got it right with the idea of me wanting to bring more than 2 kids home! Ahh! They are 100% precious kids! I would LOVE to think we could do this again...we'll see what God has in mind as our future unfolds.

Hi! I hope you don't mind comments from strangers, but we (my husband and I) follow peoples blogs who adopt from Ghana. I was stuck in Ghana for 3 months with our adoption. So I can understand your frustrations. I left a little bit of my heart there and will always have a great love for the Ghanian people and Africa. We will pray for you and your family. I know that it helps...I could feel it clear across the ocean. On my blog I have a list of others who have or who are adopting. Hope that helps. http://houseofhobbies.blogspot.com

Patty- I've been following your blog ever since you left. These boys are so blessed to have you as family as well as you to have them. We are praying for you and can't wait to see you at homeschool events when you get back as a family!
