Almost Two Weeks...




Yikes.. It has been almost two weeks since I posted here. That is not to say there has been no news or that I have forgotten to post "The Rest of The Story" Nicole has been extremely busy on the west coast meeting with people and making plans.....


On the east coast well... Not much new here. We did however finally invite some readers! Yeah!!!! People to share our story with and to follow along as WE see where this journey will lead us. But WE don't want to be just a WE of two... We hope that WE will bloom and grow to benefit so many more people then a WE of two could ever imagine!! So to everyone who has just joined WELCOME... And know that you are now part of WE!!!!


Before I write any more posts though I feel like I need to finish the story of OUR trip in Bishkek. I still find it amazing looking back that this trip became OUR trip and how that just was made to happen. Nicole and I never planned anything, all our plans were made for us and we just followed the lead. Never could we have imagined not only a trip to see our kids, but the beginning of an awesome friendship, and a renewed faith. Nicole and I shared some wonderful times in our week together. The time with our kids was just a small portion of that time. Yes that is what we were brought to Bishkek for, but what we left with is so much larger.


Shared thoughts, reflections, and prayers were a very special part of our time in Bishkek. Some moments were silent, some filled with tears, holding hands around a meal prepared by people we had never met before, or just a hug or a bottle of orange pop. But each and every different experience filled us with awe of the power that led us to this place. MAking us realize that in this life there are "no coincidences" there are no "accidents" everything happens for a reason. And to this extent even the timing of our adoption processes (however awful the wait may seem now) is happening for a reason......
