I would be lying if I said I wasn't excited about seeing everbody at the airport! Many years ago when they Lord first began to work in my heart towards adoption I came across the homecoming video of a family coming home from China. My heart ached for that moment to be a part of my story. And here it was. God is faithful.
I have said before that one of the reasons Shane and I feel the Lord has called us to adoption is because of the verse that says "To whom much is given, much is required." Shane and I have been given much when it comes to our families and this picture is evidence of that!.
Such precious family and friends that are like family welcoming Sarah home!
When I was a child I was confused by the words in the Bible that said, "Mary pondered all these things in her heart" after the wise men visited the baby Jesus. I think I understand that now. I have spent the last week pondering these moments in my heart. It was a precious day. The day my baby came home.
My sister in law, Cameron, had the foresight to have a friend come and take pictures and I am so grateful! After the airport our family came to the house to enjoy lunch and help keep us up for awhile. It was a blessed day. Enjoy the pictures.

|This made me cry. I looked up and there were all three of my children walking together.|
