Is this thing on?

We're back from our almost-5 week stint in Kazakhstan. I know most of you followed along in the travel blog, but for those of you that didn't, we are pleased to introduce our daughter, Eva.

She is a healthy little girl, just turned 1 year old. And I'm headed back to Kazakhstan to pick her up next week. We should have her home by the end of July. I can't wait!

The trip wasn't without its problems. In fact, it was pretty much a disaster from the get-go. But all's well that ends well, right?

The boys were glad to see us, and we were so glad to see them. They are the best boys ever. I can't believe how much I missed them. They are a lot of work (like, a lot of work, just ask their grandparents), but being apart from them is like losing an arm or leg for me. They are so much a part of me. Ever since I had Owen, I became this weird thing called Mommy, and it is all that I am. So being away from them was hard. But we're together again, and they are (I think) looking forward to meeting Sister. And I know she is looking forward to meeting them!

I'll be back on a plane in less than a week, but I'll try to find time to update more. Thanks for sticking by us!

What a doll! She looks like a sweetheart! How exciting for you all, to add this precious girl to your family. Best wishes as you travel again to bring her to her new life.

She is such a cutie pie! What a blessing...I am sure you can't wait until the traveling is done and you are home sweet home for good:-) We'll keep you in our prayers.
