How things are going.....

 This was taken within an hour of getting home on Tuesday...I fed the kids because I knew they had not eaten much on the plane because they were asleep...I love how all the little ones surround them.....













From the pictures you can see how we do it....very naturally wooing and loving on the new kids. We never have to tell them what to do...they just know and boy I tell you they make the transition into our family very easy for the new kids....and even the ones already here who need help with feeling special can get the attention they need from an older sibling.

Things are going very well with these 3 new ones. We are enjoying having them home and watching them discover things. They are eating well, sleeping great and seems to feel happy. We swim every day and that really has helped to foster a trust with the little guys and Sari is enjoying having siblings and playing...At first she wanted to "work" and take care of her brothers but we have encouraged her to play. I think she worked and missed out on her childhood. We are gradually seeing her develope a little girl like play and it is so much fun to watch her. This afternoon Selah and Sari played for hours with the kitchen set and dishes I have out by the pool....They had a really good time playing together.

So happy that things are going well for you! What a mighty God we serve! So happy for Selah too...to be forever in family with her sweet brothers and sisters. Her face is just beaming in the pictures! Praying you are getting rested up!
