Catie Come Home

Our adoption journey to Guatemala

April 20, 2005

The Best of Times

The sickness of the past week is nothing compared with the joy in our hearts now that we are home. The same is true of the numerous adoption trials we have endured over the past year-plus -- the overbearing social worker whose unnecessary demands forced us to delay the homestudy process by nearly two months last spring, the months-long wait for Catie's birth and the even more excruciating months-long wait to be able to bring her home.

None of it matters now because we are home happily and safely. We have a new daughter in our home and wonderful memories of a journey to Guatemala with my parents and our children. We have three beautiful children, a family we could not have had on our own. We are blessed.
