Gotcha Morning...

It’s Monday morning, and in less than two hours we will be holding Lexi and Sophi in our arms! It is a very exciting, terrifying, surreal feeling. Walking into our room late last night and seeing a crib here made me want to jump up and down and go and hide at the same time! Two at once!!! How did we get so blessed???

The jet lag has not been fun, and last night was quite the experience, being how we were sooooo very tired and yet had so much on our mind that we couldn’t sleep much. I kept dreaming that I was late to meet the group and I didn’t have the gifts for the orphanage ready and worst of all, I didn’t have make-up on. LOL. When I finally woke up for good, Jeremy rolled over and said, “Are you going into labor, honey?” The excitement was palpable, even in our exhausted state.

I can’t wait to find time to tell about all our experiences with Graci’s sweet foster family. We have LOTS of fun pictures to share, but the computer connection is slow and I’m sure we’re going to be crazy busy for the next couple of days.

We will of course share news of today as soon as we are able. (: We’d love your prayers for us and for our two new girlies, who have no idea what’s about to hit them. We have prayed specifically that they will feel the Holy Ghost comfort them and let them feel peace. We hope for the same for us!

Taylor, Parker, Xander, and Elli—love you to pieces. Wish you were here! Can’t wait to bring your sisters home and enjoy our best Christmas ever! Be good for Grandma and Grandpa and know that you are in our minds and hearts all day.

To all those who have helped us get to this point—all our love and gratitude. We couldn’t take on something like this without the support of such good family and friends. Thank-you.



  1. AHH! I can't wait to see pics of them:) Your dad and Elli were wandering the hall in church today, so I asked Elli if she wanted to come sing with us in Singing time.. She jumped up and down and shouted "Music". Melted my heart:) She smiled and laughed through the entire singing time. What a sweet spirit she is!

  2. I still can't believe you are HERE!!! We are SOOOOOO excited for you. What fortunate little girls they are to get a family like yours! Working on our visas so hopefully we can see you on Sunday! We'll let you know. Love you guys!
