"I prayed for this child and the LORD has granted me what I asked of Him" 1Samuel 1:27

Well, we've been home for a week now and I'm still running around in circles it feels like! Man, this little guy is quick and always on the go! But I'm loving every minute of it and can't believe how fast he is catching on to things. He mimics everything we do and communicates alot through hand gestures. Sometimes he spits out alittle Russian that we don't understand but he generally makes us understand! He is very good at getting his point across, one way or another! But all in all, I don't believe we could of asked for a better first week.

I have to confess that I just had to make myself sit down here right now to do this. I have so much to tell but my thoughts are still just pretty scattered. (if that makes sense.)
So, for now I'm gonna leave you with some pictures of the little guy and promise I will be working on some posts to tell you all about our time in Gabe's country and where he spent the last couple of months. We are so thankful to be home and still trying to catch up on rest and finding a routine of sort. Thanks for all your support and prayers while trying to get this little guy home.

Well, I couldn't get my pictures off my notebook to this computer, sooooo, not exactly the pictures i had in mind. But, still good ones! I think Cole has him a best friend for sure:)


  1. I LOVE the picture with the 'Must Be Santa' cards and the last one! They brought tears to my eyes. We are VERY happy for you all....you are angels.

  2. So glad that you are home and everyone is adjusting. Based on the pictures, Cole must be LOVING having a little brother. Those pis are so sweet!
    Only 10 days til we're home with our family. Can't wait!

  3. Welcome HOME Gabe!!!!

    "I have so much to tell but my thoughts are still just pretty scattered" <--------- Yep, that's me too. And STILL is after being home for over 2 months! I was just sitting here tonight wondering if maybe on the boys one year things will actually start to straighten out in my head! LOL

    Enjoy your boy, he's a cutie for sure!
