Leah asked all day when it would be time and was so excited when we finally left the mall and headed to the airport to meet baby Aidrea, who was coming home from Ethiopia! The flight was delayed so we got to hang out and visit with friends we hadn't seen in a while. We knew it was time for hugs and tears when we saw a bouqet of pink balloons cascading down the cooridor. Dusty and Chandra escorted by ALL 4 of their beautiful children couldn't have looked happier! Aidrea was tucked safely away in Chandra's arms taking it all in. She just watched everyone and let her brother's love on her! She did great! On the day that we sent our home study off and are moving one step closer, it was wonderful to see our friends be able to bring their adoption journey full circle. It reminds you that the waiting is all worth that moment when you can bring them home to join the family forever! Love ya Benners - thanks for being a loving example of faithful living!
Here's a pic of Leah and Aidrea getting aquainted! Can't wait until both of my daughters can hang with Aidrea!
