Musings and thoughts as we work through the process of bringing our children home via international adoption.
What an exciting day for these kids, get to be with their mommies and daddies real soon, and fly on an airplane for the first time (I immagine).
All the rest didn't make me cry. Why am I sobbing now?
my heart stopped.... wait... there it goes again
Tears of Joy! Still praying the children are allowed to remain on the plane in Florida.....Our Father in Heaven is GREAT! Prayers have been heard and many more shall be lifted up and answered! Thank you for allowing us all to know what is happening.
I am so happy for you...and all the other families. We will continue to pray Jessica's father will soften his heart. Lets pray that things go smoother in Miami. You are getting your babies home.
Lori, you guys are truly an inspiration to all of us. I can't imagine going through what you have gone through over all of these months. We will keep praying that the whole situation continues to go well.
Crying! Let's go wheels up! Praying they'll be able to fly on from Miami!!! You guys ROCK!!
Thank God!!!! I let out a huge sigh....I am almost expecting to see the wind pick up here in Utah....with all of us sighing together I'm sure we would make for a huge gust at the very least. Just think of all of the laughter that will fill your house as soon as Nathan arrives home. You are blessed!
Nathalie's grandma in Ohio is thanking God and all the people involved in getting her home. Please tell Matt his mom and dad send their love. Can't wait to meet our beautiful new grand-daughter. Lori, blessings to you especially for keeping us up-to-date. Your faith is an inspiration.Colleen Maurer
Best news I have heard all day!!! So happy for EVERYONE!
How many are on this flight? Do we know?
I have goosebumps everywhere!!!! I am so excited for you all!
Plenty of tears of JOY in Bellingham, WA! So happy that Team Hope and kids are on their way to the states. Thank you Heavenly Father!!! Do you have a list of who all made it on the flight? Hoping and praying that Scott, Destina and Averie on there.
I am so happy for you!
PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!
Just got home from carpool. Had to check this before I could do anything else. So grateful for happy news!!
Lori. I check your blog 20 times a day. I have been following your story and I want you to know how much I admire you and Brent for your strength and love and dedication. I have not commented because I was worried you wouldn't remember who I am (I was with you in teh 16th ward), but when I read a little bit ago that they are on the plane I HAD to tell you congratulations. You have waited and worked so long for your baby and I am thrilled that your husband and son are coming home to you. I feel so happy for you and I am so proud to know such an amazing woman. Thank you for sharing your story. Chrissy Felt
Lori and Brent,Following your journey (especially these last two weeks)has brought a whole new perspective to my own life. You have reminded me that God didn't put us on earth just to fulfill a to-do list. He's more interested in what we are than what we do--that's why we're called human beings, not human doings. You have taught me by example that through the Happy moments, PRAISE GOD. Difficult moments, SEEK GOD. Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD. Painful moments, TRUST GOD. Every moment, THANK GOD.Thank you for your strength and example of endurance. YOU are MY Heros!-MDS
Thank You Heavenly Father, thank you Brent and Lori, thank you pilot who refused to leave.Kate W.
Lori--what a FANTASTIC Birthday present for Brent!God really is full of grace and mercy. And, as you have stated many times on this forum, the He really doesn't cheat anyone. God bless you and your family and all the families of these Angels that are homeward bound...
Praying they can fly on from Miami and our heavenly father brings them home to you. You are in my Brothers ward and I have been following your story along with my friend and you two are amazing. Kim W
I am sure that this in not what Brent had in mind for his birthday today, but it is a wonderful gift for these children and the family’s whose lives they will bless. Nathan is so lucky to have you both as his parents!
CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!! That is so exciting and I am so happy for you!!!
Chris just asked what the update is and I can't even tell him because I am crying. I am so happy for those children and for you!!!
