Life is (obviously) completely different since getting the twins. I don't have any spare time and when I do...well, I'm pooped. Sorry if you worried. I know you must be wondering how we are doing and what the adjustments have been like. I'll share a little now since I had a nap today! :)
I talked to my mom today. She was wondering how we are doing. What the adjustment has been like for us, etc. The babies have been wonderful. It's truly amazing to think that we never planned to live in a foreign culture much less adopt other-culture kids. But God knew the plans He had/has for us. I'm glad we chose to obey.
As a matter of fact, my mother, who couldn't talk to me without tears for the first two weeks after we told her we were moving over here, told me today, "Look at the richness of our lives, ALL of our lives, because you chose to obey." Wow, mom. Thanks for that.
We know it's a journey we don't walk alone and therein lies the sweetness-that you all choose to keep walking with us, even when it hurts.
We are glad to be back. SO MUCH happened in our absence. We are busily catching up with friends and jumping back into the lives that are going on around us. Many of our young friends are planning marriages. We have changed alot as well.
The twins have been well received amongst these yellow people. The littlest yellows don't know how to respond at first and then...their childlikeness takes over and all at once, there is no color between them, just laughter and playing. I love how God works. It's really a beautiful thing to see someone BECOME color blind.
More to come as naps persist...
