Home from Haiti

My sister & I arrived home safe & sound Saturday evening. We woke up at 4:15am Saturday morning to see Vania off. A little after 5:00 Am Harry ( an adoption facilitator that works with our orphanage ) brought the van to the hotel to take the kids back to the O . It is never easy to say goodbye. Tiffany was able to ride with Harry & another adoptive parent to the O to help with the little ones so she held Vania on her lap. Vania was quiet until I made the mistake of coming around to the window to say goodbye one last time. Then she cried mama all the way out of the parking lot :( So sad. But Tiff said about 5 minutes later all the kids quieted down & were excited
to show off their new stuff to their friends when they arrived back at the O.

Everyone survived at home while I was away. Adam did a great job with the kids ! He admitted though that Friday he drank 4 Dr. peppers ( which he has been trying to cut back on pop ). Now I think he can appreciate my need for Starbucks :) Thanks also to Adam's mom Brenda for helping out after school ! I know Adam was grateful for the help & good food !

Another amazing trip has ended. I woke up in the middle of the night Saturday & missed Vania snuggled up beside me. Can't wait to see her again. Time to switch gears for now & get back into the swing of things . Home sweet home.
