We woke up bright and early Saturday June 13 to await our driver to the airport. As he helped us in the car with our luggage, I couldn't help but notice his accent and asked where he was originally from. You guessed it - Haiti! How cool!
Arriving in Haiti was surreal. In many ways it felt like we were just there and in many ways I felt every bit of the rough road we had traveled the past 15 months to finally be at this point. Last year getting through immigration and an airport in a different country were anxiety-filling. This year I knew what to expect and it was a breeze in comparison.
We went directly from the airport to the orphanage to see our girl. As I began to recognize familiar sights and knew where I was my heart started racing thinking I would be seeing her again after so long. Some of the kids were outside and there in the middle was Macy. She covered her face, hiding a huge grin and then came to meet us and hug us. It was wonderful.
We stayed an hour and a half that first day. Reacquainting with one another and loving on each other. Then we left to check in to our hotel and settle in for the night. An amazing amazing day.
So amazing... Love seeing the pics of Mama and Macy, and Big Sis/Little Sis!!
I was glad for the "spoiler" that you are all home, safe and sound (from your earlier post)... I can't wait to read each and every post detailing your travels in bringing Macy HOME.
So excited for you all... and my prayers certainly continue!
Love and hugs,

Hence the title of my blog
Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong
Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow
Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom
But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
