We Are Home!

We made it home. It was a long trip but both girls did amazing. They slept a lot which really helped. Galen and I didn't really sleep because we each had a girl sleeping on our lap so we couldn't really move much. We had to wait in line for an hour in Minneapolis to get through immigration. The good thing was that the immigration and customs were combined so after we got through that line, we were done.
We got back to Denver about 2 hours late. We checked into our hotel and went to bed at 10:30. Both girls were wide awake 3 hours later at 1:30 AM. We eventually got up and got ready and left the hotel at 4:00 AM.
It was so good to get home to our boys. We are hoping Jeremy is able to come home very soon. It is incredible how quickly Pei Fang took to the boys. She will go anywhere with either one of them. Yesterday we went to the bank so she could see where Dad was. She didn't talk much but she smiled a lot.
Vacation Bible School started at our church on Tuesday. Believe it or not we have gone the last 2 nights. Makenna has gone to her class. Kyle, Logan and Yuyu are helping with recreation so Pei Fang has hung out with them the whole time. She really seems to enjoy watching all the kids.
The only real issue we have had is with her clothing. She absolutely does not want to wear any of the clothes we have for her. Her foster mother bought her several new clothes before she left. I kind of wish she hadn't done that and maybe it wouldn't be such an issue. But again, maybe Pei Fang feels like that is one of the very few things she has left from "home".
Yuyu asked her last night if she liked it here and she said, "yes".
Overall, we feel like she is adjusting very well. She has had very few times where she acts like she is sad. Part of that is probably because the boys are doing a good job of keeping her busy and entertained.
We still continue to need lots of prayer. I will post some pictures from home as soon as we get the battery charged up on our camera.
