Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


Can It Be Five Years Already?

Has it really been 5 years since we boarded that plane to bring home our Eva?  Exactly 5 years ago we were getting settled into our long flight to Beijing.  Other than a short flight on a prop plane, Jack and Seth had never flown before.  It was a fun time for them both...until about 4 hours into that flight.  The excitement wore off and they were just ready to get off that plane.

The crew looks so young, don't they?  I know what 5 years has done to them, imagine what it has done to me.

We did the usual tours in Beijing and had a wonderful time seeing the wonderful sites.

We loved the Hutong tour and eating the delicious food.

We had no idea how much Eva's adoption would affect us all.  We knew within a week of returning home, that we would be back to adopt again.

Our family of five would eventually become a family of eight.
