Welcome Home

 We came home to this beautiful poster made by the kids at church.  There are many Princess Daisy and Peaches on it.  We also had the official ice cream cake that is a tradition around here.
 This is a picture from the first time we met Angela.  She warmed up to Perry first but since then she has had serious momitis.  But this is how it was with the other two so we are not surprised.
 She likes to color, music and the slide.  She is picking up the language fast.  As expected there is often trouble communicating, but she is already figured out shoes and up please.  The important things.
 This is our visit to ICAB and officially signing papers there.
 Afterwards there was a birthday party.  It involved many of the kids that are being fostering there in Manila with KBF - Holt.  It was a lot of fun.  It was a reminder that each kid has their own story and there are so many stories.
 Here we are cutting the cake.
Angela taking everything in.   Hope you enjoy these few pictures.  We are swimming here, which means we are just trying to function till we find a new normal.  I can already feel a rhythm coming.  It just takes time.

She's beautiful, Amanda. And I wasn't sure I'd ever be able to use an adjective over than "handsome" to describe your kids, so... :) Enjoy! You are all blessed.
