I promise to post pics soon and write more details soon as well. But I just wanted to put a quick note here to say that we are home and life is getting better and better each day. Josh and I both had a bit of a hard time with the time adjustment. I felt like death warmed over for two full days....even was yuck sick in my stomach and that kind of thing! Aghh....but truly - each day is getting better and today I can see the light! The weather is so warm and the sun is shining and it finally does not hurt my eyes! ha ha ha
The kids are taking to Josh much better than I anticipated. They are so nice to him and they taught him to do the stairs and how to play ball etc. etc. Will had a tough time for two days. He said things like "Mom..I don't like him...he slobbers" Or..."I don't want to bath with him...he might poop on me"!!
But last night I was bathing Josh and Will said...can I get in with him. And 30 min later..they were the best of friends. He told me today that Josh might even be his best friends! :) Oh...how wonderful little man Josh is fitting in. He is still timid...but is now giving food to the boys and following them around etc. etc. !
I felt very out of control the first few days as my tiredness was making everything seem so hard! Even Target shopping felt like a chore...but today....I see that it will all be ok! Better than ok!
Thank you to everyone for your kind e-mails and just the amazing love that you sent me each day that got me through this hard time. I will admit, that there were times that I didn't think I was going to make this happen and that I thought maybe I was not tough enough to get through this. But in the end...."We" did it!! :)
Thank you Mom, Alyssa, Brian, Bob, Dianne....Shelli, Erica, Mary Beth, Catherine....Dad, Steve, ....oh my....the list goes one. How very blessed I am....to my travel mates and for all the wonderful comments that so many of my best friends shared with me! You are the reason I am here to have this wonderful day! The only reason!! I love you all. I will post details of my travel and our first days together soon! For now....Bob and Dianne took the two older boys to lunch and the small men are sleeping...so I will sleep a bit with them! My days are better when I make up for my lack of night time sleep with a small nap! Me...napping? Yeah.....I am admitting that it is needed and that is the first step to recovery right!!
Happy New Year!! I love you all!!!
