Hey everyone,

First of all, to those of you waiting for an update of some sort last week......I apologize. I had tried to upload a few photos while we were in Korea but for some reason it wouldn't let me so I did my updating on my Facebook profile. Now that we're home I keep telling myself I need to update my blog but can't seem to find the time. We are still recovering from jet lag and are so very exhausted on top of having a precious but grieving new baby. I'm just going to post a few pictures for now(because I know that's what you all want to see anyways) and then I'll write an update soon........hopefully!!! :) We are doing well though, had an AMAZING time in Korea and are very happy to be home, finally a family of five. Averi is doing well, she's still grieving pretty hard for her Foster mom but we expected this and are compforting her the best we know how. We're just loving on her, kissing her and telling her how much we love her and that she is now with her forever family. More details to come........thank you all so so much for all your comments, messages and prayers. We appreciate them very much!!

Date night with the kids the night before we left
