Our Homecoming

I thought I'd repost this ... as it was a year ago today that we arrived home in Portland. Hard to believe all that has happened in a year. So thankful to have these moments captured so beautifully!
We've been home for 3 months.  It is hard to believe ... and looking at our homecoming reminds me how very far we've come.

Although delayed by a day (and missed by our dear friends, the Lawrie's because of that) our homecoming was perfectly captured by my friend, Jay McKenney, in this video.  I thought I would repost it on my blog ... 

Welcome Home Kenen HD from Jay McKenney on Vimeo.

Thanks to all of our friends who welcomed us home ... and to those whose prayers were with us throughout the entire journey to bring our son home.  We are blessed!


  1. Amy, Thank you for sharing this! I missed it the first time. It brought back so many memories of our arrival at PDX with Emily! It is such a special moment captured beautifully by Jay. I continue to pray for you and your new family of 6 that the transition will go according to God's plan and that He will renew your spirit each and every morning! I love you dear friend and am so pleased that your dream is now a reality.

  2. such a completely lovely video of your return. it cracks me up that once Kenen woke up and figured out that camera was trained on him, he did not take his eyes off it!!

  3. Just catching up on your blog Amy! So exciting to read your adventures. I cannot help but laugh though that you have my blog in your sidebar, all the wonderful adoption stories and then me, announcing giveaway winners or fall decorating ideas. Sigh.

    I also enjoy listening to Beautiful Things when I come here! :-)

  4. Amy,

    I received your comment on our blog and would love to meet you sometime too! Although it may have to be when we return, I don't want to forget, so you could post another comment on my blog with your email address. I won't publish the comment on my blog. It looks as though we may have a couple mutual friends as well (i.e. Jay McKenney, although we're closer friends with his brother and sister-in-law. Jay's more friends with my husband's sister and brother-in-law). Small world.
