Just a quick note...  

We are all alive.  7 of the 9 of us are either sick or recovering.  Yikes!  And on top of that, everyone who has entered our home since we've been home has come down with the flu.  Sorry everyone!  My mom is VERY sick with it.  She was only around us the night we came home...  

It's a good thing that we live in the USA so we can get good medicine!  I take that so for granted.  At least I did until this trip to Ukraine.  Thank You, God!

This weekend is the Down Syndrome Easter Egg Hunt.  We'll be there with all our crew.  It'll be a fun day, no doubt!

Thanks for your prayers during our transition.  It's going GREAT!  We played with all the kids out in the backyard tonight.  Swinging, bubbles, sliding, wagon rides.  It was a great time.  No pictures.  What was I thinking!!!????

I WILL post some pics soon of our trip home, etc.  We'll also get some pics with all the kids together posted soon!

What next?

    Praise God for the good results with Eli's bloodwork. Our son had a transient problem when he was 4--very low white count. He had to be a precaution for hemorrhage for a few weeks and on a cortisone-drug but he is fine now and 14.
    I pray for your whole family's health.

    Boy do I wish we were home with you guy's. I pray everyone is well and up to your big day at the DS Easter Egg Hunt. Maybe we'll join you next year. :) It's great to talk to you and Mary each day. Thank You for your concern and friendship. This is a lonley place. We can't wait to be home together. Just think, we could have our OWN Easter Egg hunt, there's enough if us, for now. :)
    Love you guy's!

    I am so glad that your son is going to be alright (and responded so quickly!). Y'all are so blessed! Thank you for sharing. I was worried.
