Gotcha Day!!

We  just got back from bring Deborah home from the transition home.  What an experience, we are way above cloud 9 right now!  Deborah cried a little when Anna took her from Hanna's arms (her nurse for the past few months at the home), but then Deborah got to hold some of the toys and musical stuffed toy that we sent her way back in April after the referral, and Deborah settled right in.  She was enthralled by all the traffic in the city, her little eyes were looking everywhere!  By the time we returned to the Weygoss, Deborah was sound asleep in Anna's arms and that is where she is right now as I type this message at an internet cafe across the street. (internet is done at the weygoss, I think a common theme in these parts:)
All of us are doing well, everyone is healthy even though a little sleep depraved (for me and Trish, believe it our not, everyone else had slept like logs!)
We will get pictures posted once we have a more stable internet connection, but rest assured that she is the most beautiful baby that has been born in the past 6 years!  
God is good, we are so thankful to Him for making our lives and Deborah's become one.

Hurray! We have been waiting for this post and it gives me the goosebumps remembering what a thrill it was to finally have our long awaited daughter in our arms! What a precious moment! We praise God for health for all of you and for a sweet and memorable "Gotcha Day"!
