Home, Sweet Home!

I thought I should just check in and tell you that we all made it home in one piece… well, four pieces actually, all of us.

Only there’s SEVEN (7) of us now!  Five kids… that’s kind-of a big family.  I mean someone called our family big once when we only had 3 kids; but even I’ll admit that 5 is kinda’ a big number.


China was great, but I was homesick before the first week was even out!


I forgot to bring my Bible to China 🙁 so I’m trying to get back into the swing of reading it daily.  I’m currently in Deuteronomy, which I didn’t really have the brain cells to read today (or thought I didn’t) so I just flipped around and landed in Psalms.  I found these two verses which I previously underlined, and I thought I’d share them with you:

Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delgithful inheritance.

-Psalm 16:5,6

  1. We are so happy to have you all safely back home! We are praying for a calm peaceful transition time now for all of you. I grew up in a family of seven too and just like you, Hanna, I was the middle child with 2 older siblings and 2 younger siblings. It was fun and at times crowded, but we all loved one another and there was always one or two (or even more) of us around if you needed a friend you could count on. Sending you love and a hug!

  2. Congratulations on having your new sister home! I was so excited when I saw on “There’s No Place Like Home” that your family was adopting “Quinn.” Merry Christmas!
