We are so THRILLED to be home! We are excited to set up a routine, and work on creating some normalcy and a sense of permanence for Mackenzie. We are completely exhausted, but very happy! Mackenzie has had nightmares every night since we’ve been home, and is unable to go back to sleep afterwards, so it has been a long couple of nights! We’re starting to find our rhythm, though, and are having a good time getting to know our girl, and show her her new world.

Ready to come home! She was great on the plane, and only got upset when she couldn’t get comfortable enough to sleep.

Sleep, she did, although only for about six hours of our twenty-four hour trip!

Finally home! And so happy to be there!

    Glad to hear you are home and that M did well on the plane even though she didn't sleep much. Hopefully the nightmares will stop very soon!!It's been so fun following your journey!!!

    I'm glad that you are back stateside. Great job on the flight…it seems like you tend to brace yourself for the worse and look back on it and think \”okay – that wasn't that bad\”. :)I hope her nightmares stop soon and you all can get some much needed rest. Welcome home – Mommy, Daddy & MacKenzie!
