Full heart

We wanted to make sure Jet got enough to eat at meals, so early on Papa would say "Full" with a question mark tone. Jet would just stare.

Eventually Papa moved to "Full" while patting his tummy, often accompanied by a sigh as he would lean back to show his hand patting his stomach.

We still weren't too sure he got it.

Until one day he finished eating before we noticed, leaned way back in his chair in a slouch, let out a big sigh while patting his tummy and said "Full"!!! We busted out laughing!

What crazy things he must think we Americans do!

My heart is full today. It is my sweet Peanut's coming home day. The day I truly became a Mother. She has been home 8 years. Unbelievable really. I can remember the wait for her like it was yesterday. I can't wait to hug her and watch her coming home video this weekend to celebrate.

My heart is full today. We got our visa and will be leaving within the next few hours to be reunited as a family of five! I will get to hug all 3 of my children at once very soon!

My heart is full today. I was missed by Bug and Peanut even though I am a "mean" Mama and make them do school and chores! I can't wait to hug them both.

My heart is full today. Jet leaned on me, really held my hand and initiated sitting on my lap!! I can't wait for this journey to continue!

My heart is full today. I had my best friend, my husband to make this journey with and i thank God for putting him in my life.

My heart is full today as I thank God for the way He is creating my family and for the many blessings we have been given. May we always remember to never take those for granted.

My heart is full today. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share with others this adoption journey. To pray, help and learn with others similiar to our family is a HUGE blessing. Thank you for being here and for sharing your journey with me as well. You are all in my prayers!

"See" you in America!!

I give up! I lost it again!!

I found your blog and read the Thailand and had to stop by and say Hi.

I lived in Bangkok as an expat for almost 4 years and volunteered at the childrens orphanage in Nontunburi near our home. I know they have numerous orphanages in Thailand so your sweet son may have come from one of the others.

It is such a great country and you are doing a wonderful thing for this child. I know I wish I could have taken them all home with me but unfortunately I couldn't. Part of the volunteer work we did was getting these children use to being around people from other countries so they could trust.

email me if you have any questions about

welcome home!

Again welcome home!

Oh, this is just too sweet!!!! I can hear the fullness of your heart as I read what you wrote. Thanks for keeping us in the loop and sharing your adoption life with us. By now, you are probably at least in American, or possibly home, and I am glad you are home. What an adventure you had to get to this point of your continued adventure; LIFE!

Do let me know if there is anything I can do for you.
