Saying Goodbye

It is good to be home but we SO miss our kids! We are already planning our next trip back to visit them ;). It looks like this last phase is running longer than usual and could be about 8-10 months until they are home :(. This will be crazy hard but we plan on visiting at least a couple times so we look forward to that time with them!  
We would really would like to go back and see them MANY times but we are really praying through what is best for the kids....it was SO hard on Little Brother when we had to say goodbye :(. They had to pry him off of us and he just sobbed and sobbed. Baby Sister shook her head and said "no, no" when told her goodbye but as soon as we handed her over to a nanny she popped that thumb in her mouth and relaxed a bit. 
I can't even imagine how confusing this must be for them~ especially Little Brother. We really feel like he let his guard down and began to trust us and let us in his world those last 4-5 days...then the next thing he knows we were saying goodbye. We had the staff and older kids there helping us when we told them goodbye so that he'd really understand that we ARE coming back, Lord willing, and helping him understand that we WANT to bring them home now but can't until all of their paperwork is done. Even with all that help, he of course was confused....so we just pray in Jesus' Name that He would cover them and give them His peace and assurance that we are their family and we love them forever! 
We miss our scenic morning drives to the crechè 

But most of all we miss times like this just lounging around as a WHOLE family! 

God is good all the time and He has a great plan for ALL of His children so we will rest and trust in that!!
