I checked Anna's blog one last time and discovered that they had already left the Paris airport and were on their way home. Since I couldn't tell when that post was written, I immediately sprang into action, gathering my children. "We're going to get there too late! Let's move quickly!" I called. We pulled up into their driveway to hang the pink celebratory balloons around their home. Anna and Paul's family had obviously already been there and had staked a huge homemade sign on the front lawn. I grabbed the balloons and string just as the family pulled up beside me. They were meeting each other to drive to the airport together. They had signs and cameras and were bubbling with excitement. The adrenaline of all of us was high... and I was glad we weren't too late!
Since we now had some time, the kids and I decided to chalk pictures and messages all over the driveway... just to make things look even crazier :) It was so thrilling to be part of such a miraculous homecoming.
She's finally home! Welcome Baby Deborah Audrey Nekemte Vos to our community of love. We've been waiting so long for you. Praise God for your beautiful little self :)
