Welcoming Ema Home

Well the day has come to prepare for Ema. What a life changing ride this has been for us. Have any of you waited 2 years + for something and had to stay excited about it the entire time? That is basically what we just did in a nut shell. Looking back, I can see how God had his hands in it, especially in the end. I pray EVERYDAY that I never forget 2 weeks ago. I want to remember everything that happened! I am still in awe over it all. I know without a doubt that this has brought us closer to God and we cannot wait to tell her about all the many blessings we received while waiting for her. I feel like I should shout it from the mountaintop I am so greatful to GOD. We cannot thank EVERYONE enough for all of the prayers, encouraging emails, cards, text messages, etc. I have them all saved and will be putting them in her baby book. We are blessed to have such a great family and friends. We love you all and hope that you will all gather at the airport when we get home with Ema. Keep checking the blog for our travel date!!

Kirk and Emily
