Currently we're changing up our everyday lives just a little bit. We have a little girl from Africa, her Mom, and an interpreter all living with us. They arrived today. The little girl is having heart surgery which is the reason for the visit. It's through Samaritan's Purse. We're excited (and nervous about having people in our house) but if you want excited, you should see the kids! My 2 have been bouncing off the walls all day!
We picked them up at the airport this afternoon/early evening (they got out of customs around 5:30) and all 3 were pretty tired (almost a full 24 hours of traveling). The little girl, G (another G - so my daughter will be E for the time being) was so quiet and I wasn't sure if she was going to be overwhelmed by my two (who are anything but quiet or still or calm or...they're just overwhelming - even to me!). ;)
Well, we got home and all of a sudden there were 3 tornadoes whipping through our house. It was wonderful! All 3 of them had a terrific time. We're excited that they're all getting along. I'm still a bit nervous about living life with other people in our house, but I'm sure we'll all adjust soon. The important part is that G will get her surgery! No matter what my comfort level is or whether we're close to them by the end or just find it was nice and interesting to have met each other, G will have what she needs and that's what this is all about.
