He's Coming Home!!!


Our whole family will be together next Saturday! The travel dates have been confirmed; Jim and I will head to Miami on Wednesday, fly to Haiti on Thursday morning and return to Miami with Asa Mackenley on Friday evening!! We'll stay there that night - - an evening alone together in the hotel will give us some time to rest and bond before driving back to our home on the Gulf Coast Saturday morning. We can't believe it's finally happening!

Beth, this seriously makes me cry (looks really good at the office too), you have been a huge stregth to me for almost two years and I already know this information, but just seeing it with Asa Mack's picture on your blog makes it so real for me. I cannot wait to see the homecoming photos.

Beth...so, so happy for you and your family. God is so good and faithful. I'm sure you know this already, but Brad will be in Florida the 3rd week of March. He needs to come see you and meet the newest addition. I'll work on him from here, OK? :)

Travel safely. I'll be stalking your blog to see pictures and read updates.

Beth! What can I say?! I'm thrilled beyond words that Asa Mack is finally coming home. That doesn't mean you are off the hook for late night chat ok? I wish I could be there to watch you walk off the plane with your son. This is wonderful news - congrats again to your whole family!

I remember the morning we left for Guatemala to go get Vilma and I have the same kind of butterflies in my stomach for you! We'll be praying for a smooth and happy transition for Asa. Can't wait to meet him. Tell us when you're coming to Ohio this summer.

I am so (!!!!!!!!) very excited for you guys, your whole world is about to totally blow up with love and non-stop happy noise! Kids are amazing! Our Haitian kids are REALLY amazing! Takes tons of snacks and baby wipes for the plane, also a little book light kept Miss A. happy for a long time.
I can't wait to hear your home coming experience.
