We're home!

Happy Easter Everyone!

We got home after midnight last night. Artiom did wonderfully, but he was very tired and over stimulated. He was comforted to be in a crib at home and got up and took his first bath and loved it! Then he went outside to play with his brothers and sisters in the sand box, which he LOVED. Now he is taking another bath :)
I will post pics as soon as I can......

I have so much to tell about our trip :) :)

    I totally agree with your post above. You can't leave what you saw behind... so you leave a part of your heart behind with it. It changes you. It makes you better, more compassionate, and it lights a fire that won't burn out. You are doing something! You have Ari, and you are spreading the word... who knows who you will reach with your story!

  10. I am so glad to see you are home now! Congratulations on your new son! I am so excited that your family has made it home! :)
