Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

I Can't Believe...

it's been two years already. It seems like yesterday that I was saying good-bye to Toby and Greg and setting off to Guatemala to pick-up Liliana. I got there early that day thinking that I could get Lili sooner. Ha! I had to wait 4 hours for them to bring her. As soon as I said "Hola, mi hija" she started to cry. The nanny tried for 45 minutes to get her to calm down, finally the coordinator told her just to give Liliana to me. She cried for another hour until she exhausted herself and fell asleep on my chest. She was a mess, after all that she had been through, even at 8 months, she could not trust. Everyone said what a good baby she was and I had to tell them that good was no what I wanted. I wanted her to be able to be herself, she was SO scared.

And then there was the whole Embassy mess that held us up in country for 12 days instead of 5 and had us calling senators, congressmen, and who ever else would listen just to be able to bring Lili home. It was an interesting trip, with both good and bad and I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING! All 12 wonderful, hard days. You can follow along again by clicking the links. It was fun to look back, won't you please join me...

Our Visit Home in Pictures

We had a great visit home! We spent time with all our favorite people. Well most of them, we missed a few. Hopefully next time. I know exactly what weekends we'll be home for the next couple of months and I'll post them on facebook where it's more secure. Now we're looking forward to when my parents visit again for Valentine's Weekend.
