Eric, Lissie and BABY visit

We're slated to have a glorious holiday weekend! We're celebrating the high school graduations of two of our adoptees. Matt joined our family at age 5 in 2001. Kirsten was just shy of aging out of the orphanage system in Russia when she joined our family in 2010. We give thanks to God for both of them, and rejoice with them as they cross this important milestone in their lives.

To join in the rejoicing, Eric and Alison flew in from Boston tonight.

This was Alison's first return home since she married last October. Everyone was eager to hug her.

Then came excited questions about "Baby"

Hope led the charge in asking if she could touch Alison's bump. Alison will be 22 weeks along tomorrow. "Baby" now weights about 1 pound and he's already a feisty kicker.

Meanwhile, I snapped this photo of our new grandchild. Eric and Alison now know the gender of their baby and have let us in on the BIG secret. We'll share that news in the next post. Is it a boy or a girl...???
