Our weekend visit went great.  I loved having the kids here and was sad to see them go back.  It was WONDERFUL having a car that fit all of us (no seat was spared).

With that being said, adding 3 more kids is A LOT.  Adding 3 young kids is even more.  But, they are worth it.  Lizzy just loves having them here to play with and asks when they are coming back all the time.  They will be back this weekend.

I wish I knew when they would be able to move in.  I called all the workers Monday morning and asked them to get things moving.  Everyone seems to be waiting on everyone else.  If things don't start to move I will be making LOTS more phone calls.

It is definitely easier going back to 3 kids, but it is time for our kiddos to come home.  J, the oldest, was very upset to go back to his foster home.  He LOVES having my son and husband around and at his foster home he is the only boy.

We had lots of good moments and lots of interesting moments.  The kids talk about their bio parents, well, J talks about his bio parents.  He is very much aware of them and is still trying to figure all of this out.  He will be 6 years old in October.

The two girls just had a good time.  They were all giggles, well, there was some pouting in there when they didn't get their way, but were very easy to be around.  No one in their right mind would not fall in love with the youngest, she is a doll.  And the older girl is stunning, she looks like Holly Berry to be honest.

They have hurts.  The older two the most.  They seem like happy kids and are very lovable, but are typical kids who whine and pout to get their way.

We care about them a lot and just want what is best for them and we think that is a family...and we can give them that.

So exciting hearing about all of your kids and their adjusting to each other and missing each other already. Wonderful. Praying for things to move!!

Yes, adjusting to 3 more is a lot. My girlfriend had 3 children and just brought 3 more home from the Congo. The adjustment was and is big, but she wouldn't change a thing. I can't wait for your little ones to come home.

So glad to hear things went well. Do they have fall break there? Perhaps they could get an extended visit going by then. Here's hoping the workers get moving!

I don't even know what to say! I don't know how you and hubby are doing it...but I'm so glad you are!

Based on how attachment goes it will be interesting to see if the little one ends up with more struggles than the older ones simply because she didn't have enough bonding time with her first family. It seems like even if the parents aren't the best, we are created to bond and if that isn't possible problems can come down the road. The two older ones had more of the bonding time. At least that is the situation we have noticed with my daughters 3 adopted ones.

Wishing the very best for your future.
