Home Sweet Home

July 29, 2007

We have been home for a couple of days. Thank the Lord. I have missed my family so much. Trey arranged with the airlines to meet us at the gate! What a wonderful surprise to see them when we got off the plane. A friend of ours that is a photographer came with them and was able to capture our reunion. What a sweet reunion is was! Xiang Yi met everyone and let Trey hold her right away. I was so pleased to see her acceptance of him. Katherine and Hunter just about tackled me and I couldn’t have been happier to be home and with my family again.

Katherine and Hunter have been so patient and kind to Xiang Yi. Katherine (age 2 ˝) has really been like the older sister and loves being with Xiang Yi and showing her everything. It is really cute to watch, and hard to believe that they are three years apart in age because they are almost the same height and weight.

I have been having a hard time adjusting. I know a lot of it is because I am completely exhausted, both mentally and physically. We are working on some issues, and I know that it will take some time for us to get comfortable being a family of five.

Xiang Yi has her first doctor’s appointment on Monday. We are anxious to get an idea of what is truly wrong with her legs and to find out the severity of her heart condition. We appreciate your prayers and support, as adoption is never an easy road. We know that she is so unsure of her new life right now, as it is totally different than anything that she has ever known. I am also having some difficulty adjusting, and your prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Thankful to be home,
Michelle, Trey, Hunter, Xiang Yi and Katherine
