Remembering Uganda: HOME!
We are telling our adoption story by posting a series of emails that were sent while we were in Uganda in July & August of 2012. If you have made your way here because you are thinking about adopting from Uganda or are in the process, please know that the process is very different now than it was in 2012.

I just wanted everyone to know that we are home. HOME. We are home. It still feels a little surreal that we’re really here. We just hugged necks and had real-time, live, in-person conversations with people we love dearly and have missed terribly, and we just tucked our children into their own beds in their own rooms. We are about to go to sleep in our bed in our room in our home. HOME.
So amazing. God is so good.
Our travels went well considering none of the 6 of us slept that well or that much over the 26-hours of traveling. Our children’s behavior on the flights was really not bad when you take into account how sleep deprived they all were 🙂 We are praying we all get good rest tonight, recover from jet lag quickly and for a smooth transition as we figure out what it looks like to be a family of 6 here in our own home. Thank you so much for your prayers and for being with us all along the way.
