The BIG Day

Today is a really special day for us. Can you guess what it might be?
It's our very first ever:


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! :)
