Posting at SHINE

After almost 3 years of posting to this blog I've decided I am going to simplify my life and put all posts (for all my children!) on my "photography blog": SHINE!
I hope to see you there!

We're Home!

It was so strange signing on to Blogger and not changing the language from Chinese to English! It is good to be home.

We arrived in Sydney at 8:30 am and were at our house by 10:30 (via taxi by a cab driver originally from Guangzhou - how great is that?). The house was decorated with a welcome home sign and balloons (thanks Sonia, Johannah, Stephanie and Kristen!) There were meals in a cooler (thanks Lisa and Ian) and groceries arrived soon thereafter (thanks Ashlyn & Sonia) and gifts for Tia too! (Thanks Lucy, Carl, Oliver, Jessica, Macy & Ashlyn, Chris, Sophia, & Rhianna, Tony, Sam, Zoe) . . . . It was so fun! The kids slept on the flight . . . . well, Tia, not so much :( Matt & I are pretty exhausted, we both took naps today. Tia is enjoying her room and house, but she does seem a little stressed by yet another change. In another day or two she will be settled in and livin' the good life!

It has been really fun sharing our journey with all of you. I was finally able to read all the wonderful comments - thanks to each and every one of you for encouraging us. We are blessed - really. God is so faithful and our little Tia is such an answer to every prayer that we prayed and you prayed with us. We cannot even believe how blessed we are. I promise to post photos of Hong Kong Disneyland tomorrow (It was really fun:). I do want to say Happy Birthday to Casiana Madalina Covaci in Romania. Six years old today. Casi, we count our blessings and you are one of them. We continue to believe that God has a plan and his ways are perfect. Casiana, you were meant to be a part of our lives, we will always love you, dear little girl and pray that God fulfills the plan he has for your life. Happy Birthday sweet 6 year old, someday you will know how very much you were wanted by a family . . . . .

Cheers from Sydney, home to the Witt family of SIX!! (seven, if you count Zeke) We could see the blue sky today and the stars tonight! It is good to be home :)
