The following video (made by the Eimers at Loved Already) and a post by Heidi at Blessings from Ethiopia have been on my mind recently. The question keeps haunting me, "Can we offer them any less?" As I sit here watching my son play, so safe, so happy, so loved, I'm pretty sure I already know the answer.

Well folks, it's been a long time. A very long time. We got home and after getting settled I started thinking, I really need to blog, but where should I begin? Should I write about our trip or about Isaiah and his transition? To put our trip into words seemed so overwhelming...not to mention that so many families had already blogged about it, would anyone even read it? On the flip side, I wanted to document it for Isaiah and seriously, when we were in the waiting phase, I would read any adoption blog I could find, especially if it might shed light on even one little tiny detail that someone else might have left out. I started to blog several times about Isaiah, but he was doing so well and our transition was so easy, it seemed almost cruel to describe it when many of our friends were going through rough transitions. So here I am, a month and a half later, still not sure what to write. To my surprise, many people started asking me when we were going to start blogging again, people I had no idea were reading our blog. So if anyone out there is still reading this, we're making a comeback. I figure today I just had to write SOMETHING, you know, to get the juices flowing again, and now that the hiatus has been explained, I can start fresh tomorrow. Of course I can't resist sharing just a few firsts since we've been home...
First day of church
First tv show
First professional photo shoot (with daddy of course)
Are we blessed or what? =)
