Yes….I know! We’ve been home almost 7 weeks & you haven’t had an update. I’m SO SORRY!!! If we are friends on Inst*gram or F*cebook then you have seen our updates there. 🙂 I haven’t had the time or made the time to sit down & update the blog. Our family blog hasn’t been updated in forever! I’m so behind.

We have been getting used to being a family of four & absolutely love it!! I have also enjoyed my time at home with the kids (I wrote kids!!!! Eek! I still cannot believe she’s home & she’s ours!! 🙂 ). Lily is the perfect fit for our family. She is a cuddly little love bug. We’ve been busy with bonding, doctors appointments, play dates, swimming lessons for Samuel, church, lots of visitors for Lily, & everyday life. Just trying to find our new normal & get in that groove. It definitely didn’t take too long. Lily has been an easy-going baby. She started sleeping through the night after we all got over jet lag. It took me the longest out of us all to get over that. Sleep has been nice! She is getting so big & is 3 months old now! Time has just been flying by. She really is a go-with-the-flow baby. As long as I bring enough bottles along & the Ergo, we are good to go. 🙂

Our experience with the Japan program was absolutely wonderful! Japan was amazing! I’m so glad we were able to experience a little of our daughter’s birth country & hope to return one day when she is older.

So sorry for going so many weeks with no updates. I’ll leave you with some pictures of our adorable kiddos!

The day after we got back home. Mother's day with both of my beautiful children!

    Hi Heather! When I found your blog I cried! We are prayerfully hoping to adopt from Japan and it seems like finding people who have is like finding a needle in a haystack! I devoured your blog and I’m so thankful that you let people in on so much of the “process!!” I have so many questions about the process, and finding an agency who works in Japan has been so tough. Both agencies I found are not taking any new applicants 😦 Anyway, I just wanted to say that I have been feeling so down about our decision to adopt. Like the Japanese door keeps slamming closed in our faces at every turn. But I believe Jesus helped me find you today and I feel a whole new sense of hope seeing your sweet little Lily! She is precious! Absolutely precious (as is your son!) And in a funny coincidence, our daughter (biological) is also named, Lily 🙂 Peace and blessings to you and yours and Merry Merry Christmas.

    Your Sister in Christ,
