Home at Last
We are safely home tonight. Samuel had a rough first night at the hotel, but he is better now. We learned the hard way that tiny meals are all he can really handle right now. Kim was quite the trooper and I am so thankful for a friend like her. Having her travel home with us was very helpful and we enjoyed visiting. When we got to the house, we were immediately greeted with lots of beautiful smiles and hugs from the kids. Samuel and I spent the evening walking around with the kids seeing all the animals and feeding the catfish in the pond. Samuel put on a pair of jeans on for the first time in over a year. The positioning of the tubes is much better than before. As nice as it is to wear pajamas, I'm pretty sure he's sick of them by now! Talking with Kim today, gave me such a reminder of what all God has brought us through as a family and how often times situations in our lives have seemed impossible, but God provides a way. Sometimes the outcome isn't always what we had hoped for, but somehow He gives us the strength to persevere.
