Our Journey to Bring Our Son Home . . .

March 27, 2009

Check out the latest update on New Day's site. Our friends in our Disciple class sent a care package for Brett and his friends! We feel so fortunate to belong to such a wonderful church. Russ and I feel like each member in our small group is part of our family.
We are grateful for this wonderful gift and look forward to the day Brett will be surrounded by this circle of love also.

Bittersweet Birthdays

Sorry for my lack of blogging and absence online, but I had a bad case of pneumonia. After five nights in the hospital (including my birthday), I'm thrilled to be home. Luckily, my parents, neighbors, and church family have been taking care of us. Russ and the girls have never been fed so well!
Brett's birthday is also quickly approaching. It will be another bittersweet birthday for us as we continue to wait for our LOA and TA from China. Nevertheless, we will celebrate. As with the girls, we will remember our blessings, inlcuding Brett's birth family and his family at New Day. Happy Brithday sweetie!

We packed his presents up this week. Here is a clip of the girls singing "Happy Birthday" to their brother:
