It's our very first ever:
FOREVER FAMILY DAY!!
It's been exactly one today year since we had a special ceremony at Beacon House. All the children gathered around the five of us & prayed, sometimes tearfully, for our family. It was a joyful, sweet & also heart breaking time. Great joy for us & great sadness for all the dear ones still without families.
It was the first day we were able to take Luke & Nathan back to our house in Accra. We all slept in the same room that night & I remember lying awake like a Mom of a brand new infant, listening for every sigh & movement. Joy - deep, thankful joy.
We're going to "party" all weekend, as I told the boys, so I'll try to get some good pictures to post. Today includes Luke's soccer game & a family hike on the Appalachian Trail. Tomorrow - the Fair! Big fun! :)
