Our Boys Are Finally Home!!!


Hi to all of you! We are so pleased to announce that our boys are finally home! It was a whirlwind of a trip... lots of stories to share with you. We traveled for 48 hours in cars, trains and planes with our little guys. I've only slept 6 hours since getting home, so, I am only posting 1 picture tonight but will add more pics and update all of you, in more detail in the next few days.

Thanks again to all of you who have been praying for us. We are so humbled by your love and your kindness!

God bless you!

My heart is overflowing by the goodness of the Lord to allow you to be a family together! Halleulah!
OK FYI to those who might be like me, I am now going to let all know how non-techie I am, I just found out if you click on the pic, example your new family pic, you blow it up to fullscreen and can actually see everybody clearly! LOL! Can't wait to see more!! XO

Oh my - this has just been the best story thus far. We have felt the whirl of a very quick adoption with our sweet chickadee, but I can't explain how my heart has stretched wider because of your story. Thanks for sharing and let us be a part of it.

You are an absolutely GORGEOUS family inside out!

I am so glad one of our adoption friends introduced our family to yours!

We are a large adoptive family - growing leaps and bounds each year! We have adopted from Guatemala and Ethiopia. Praying to see what God will have us go next!

Enjoy your newest blessings, they are precious!

Praying for all of their needs and your families transition!

In His amazing grace,
Jill

I just had the pleasure of going back through your entire private-gone-public blog and I just have to say PRAISE GOD! Thank you for sharing the blessings the Lord has given your family. I am eager to hear how you are all recuperating from your travel and settling in. God bless!

Hi there! Any possibility of updates for those of us living overseas? :-) Derek and Renee, I met one of your sweet daughters in the prayer room last week when I was in KC for 3 days. I'm back in Hungary but now have a house there in KC to come to in July! Praise God! Can't wait to see you ALL!
