It has never felt so good to cross the threshold of my home as it did last night. I carried my little man in (doing everything I could not to wake him!), after the longest day in history ( was a 32 hour day for us). Jacob is home. Our family is complete. He is being such a trooper after a very long 4 days stuck in a Moscow hotel room (those were not my favourite days, but maybe I'll write about that later..), he has spent the morning enjoying all of his new things. Oh folks, the journey this sweet boy has taken over the past week is nothing short of incredible. He has learned so much in such a short time with us. There are so many words I could say, but I haven't slept more than about 10 hours in the past 3 nights, and my tears will ruin my keyboard.

We are so, so grateful for our family and friends who cooked us dinners, cleaned our house, gave us amazing gifts, and met us at the airport for the sweetest homecoming ever. God is good.
