August 13 - left for Ethiopia! August 15 - we passed Embassy!! August 18 - Zoe heading to her forever home!! August 19 - Welcome home Zoe Grace you are officially a US citizen!!
We are so lucky to have a huge support system and the best friends and family. They were there to greet us when we stepped off the plane.
Our sweet friends then hosted an awesome welcome home party. Zoe never skipped a beat and fit in right away. It's so cool that she automatically has 6 best friends in our small group.
The party had been planned out so well and the details were noted, even down to the toppers on the cupcakes. It really was done top notch. Thank you Raleigh and Christen for the awesome Welcome Home package you guys put together! If you or someone you know is adopting, you can click here to order the package for their coming home party.
Guys, it is Amazing how God hand picked Zoe specifically for us and how she has adapted so fast to our family. Right away she fell into Olivia's schedule which makes me one happy mommy!
Speaking of Olivia, she loves her "Sissy"! They are so cute together :) They are definitely sisters pulling hair one minute and hugging the next, true sisterly love :)
We are so thankful for each one of you that has supported, prayed and helped us bring Zoe home. I can't believe she is finally home, life couldn't get any better. :)
