While we posted regular updates via social media while in China and have shared quite a few pictures, we have greatly neglected DrakeCity. Thus, this post is long overdue – we’re home and officially a family of seven!
After arriving in the states late on Friday, May 26th, it took us a few days to get over our jet-lag fog and feel like we were functioning humans again.Well, here we are: fully functioning (for the most part) and adapting to life with five children.
Of course, Micah has the biggest change to overcome, being only two years old and having lost everything he knew up to this point. Not to mention, he can’t truly express himself and explain the grief and confusion he must be experiencing.
That being the case, we praise God for His faithfulness in answering our (and many others’) prayers, and for how He has blessed us in and through Micah. While Micah certainly has a long road of adapting ahead of him, we believe he is doing very well and quickly bonding with our family. Please do continue to pray for him (and for us), though. May the Lord be honored in our family!
