We brought our oldest and newest child home from Latvia right before Christmas and excitedly bought and wrapped presents for an extra special Christmas morning. Our kids were finally all together, our family complete after twelve years of working and praying.
They tore through the gifts, and then we went to Grammy and Granddaddy’s house where they opened more gifts. We ate and ate and played with new toys and familied until we could family no more.
It was a satisfying day.
And then the next morning as I came out of the laundry room, my new daughter met me at the door and said, “Is this it?”
I blinked at her and replied, “What?”
