Four trips in 2 years = 5 precious gifts!

This morning Tom left for trip number 4 to our favorite Country~ Bulgaria!!!
God Bless Bulgaria! The birth place of our most handsome Princes! Noah, Moses, Jacob, Julius and Pauly!

Unfortunately, Tom's flight was again.............cancelled. Today it was because of tornadoes on the East Coast! (we pray no one was hurt)

This is getting crazy! Stewardesses on strike, tornadoes.
But Tom aka our frequent flier will get there by Sunday 4 p.m. With his side kick (of 2 trips) Gabriel. :o)

We planned for Tom to be there a day early. "Just in case"! But that didn't work. So we tried to get him there on time! Nope, that didn't work either.
However! He will be there IN time Lord willing!!

Tonight I saw a Volcano on the news ...........NO!! It's in Nicaragua, so hopefully it will not affect flights or hurt any people.

I AM SO EXCITED!! Only 6.......count them~1-2-3-4-5-6 days and I will KISS my boys!! Hold my babies!

However if there are any further delays. We will survive it because they ARE on their way HOME!!

We have plead our case with a few agencies about committing to a daughter. No luck. We've seen so many girls we would consider adopting. There is still one agency that said they'd talk to us about a girl, after the boys are in our house. So we plan to talk to them after our Social Worker visits on the 20th. We've worked with our HomeStudy agency for 34 years, they did 10 adoptions for 13 of our 16 adopted children!! Thank goodness they have confidence in us!

It seems odd to us that a family who adopted 2&3 boys, a year apart would now run into this. It wasn't like we brought 5 home at once, and it would be a year from now before our daughter would come home. Plenty of time for 3 boys to adjust. This trip we are more prepared than the last. We know better how they will grieve, adjust, relapse in behaviors, grow, and learn.

Please pray for Tom, Gabriel and the boys as they travel!


  1. Yeah! I can't wait to see "Gotcha day" pics and pics of them meeting mama for the first time! Be sure to post pics of Noah seeing his new stuffed animals! That angel deserves his own toys after 9 years of nothing! He can share with his brothers if he wants! Lol! God bless u Elizabeth and ur awesome family! I can only imagine the absolute joy you must be experiencing! Prayers for safe travels for the 5 of your guys and prayers for a smooth transition amongst what I'm sure will be beautiful chaos! Lol.

  2. I am SO excited that Tom and Gabriel are on their way - slowly !! :) I can't imagine how wonderful it must be for Gabriel to be making this trip, too !! I just can't wait to see those boys broken out of that place, and home with you all !! AND THANK YOU SO MUCH for the prayer shawl !! What a wonderful surprise !! Thank you so much !! :):) ~ Jenny, Randy and Nathaniel :)

  3. Praying for Tom and Gabriel as they travel, the three luv bugs coming home, and you as you carry on while the men are away. I will be praying for all of you as everyone adjusts to new situations in the coming weeks! God bless!

  4. We are praying for a special little girl...praying that God will open that door for you. Can't wait to see Gotcha day pics!!

  5. Will be praying for all your traveling guys and for you all waiting at home! So exciting ~ and what a roller coaster ride it's been trying to get there :) May God bless them!

  6. I am praying for a safe and easy trip for Tom and Gabriel. I am praying for peace and an easy adjustment for your 3 beautiful boys. And I am praying for a smooth adjustment for all of you as you welcome 3 more angels into your family. I am so happy for you! Also thank you so much for the lovely prayer shawl. Not only is it beautiful and so soft but it smells so good! That act of kindness was unnecessary. The only thanks I need is seeing you new babies being loved on by all of you. Blessings to you and your beautiful family. Sonja
