Mami Está Aqui!!!!

Mom finally came home! Her two week was extended due to circumstances and flight availability. She had a great time in the States, but boy did we miss her here! Thank you to everyone that hosted her, gave us gifts for the baby, the baby shower, dinners, lunches, money, etc. You guys made her time in the United States wonderful. Our house has turned from a structure into a home. There is just something about having mom here. She gives an emotional support and stability to everything, much like Isaiah says, “"As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; And you will be comforted in Jerusalem." (Isa 66:13)

Here are a few photos of her return. We were waiting at the airport. We got there about 45 minutes early, and then her plane was almost an hour and a half late.  So many people had seen the family by then that they actually stayed to watch the reunion. I kid you not, when the children hugged Denise and gave her flowers, the entire airport begin to applaud, laugh and cheer! It was funny. We did not know how to respond, so we just smiled and waved.
