We have come to know this really great family over the last few months and couldn't wait to see the see little Eva Faith. She was escorted home by our adoption agency director, so the family's first meeting with their little girl happened last night, as a large group of us eager well wishers were waiting with great anticipation for the first glimpse of the newly expanded family.
Emy seemed right at home holding her little dream come true.
The plane arrived a little past 11pm, so the boys were so excited to see how dark it was outside after we woke them up and walked out the door to the car. Lleyton brought his best friend (leash), and he was holding onto him very tight because he thought it was so dark that if he dropped him he wouldn't be able see him well enough to find him. Luckily we made it all the way to airport without losing him.
What would you do to pass time in airport while waiting for the big moment? The boys chose to ride up and down the escalator with their Mommy.
We were happy to get see Sue, our agency director. Parker remembered her from her visits to Kamashi, especially the time when she delivered the care package we sent to him.
CONGRATULATIONS MEINERS FAMILY! WE ARE SO HAPPY THAT YOUR LITTLE GIRL IS HOME WITH YOU NOW. WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO WATCH HER GROW UP AND WE KNOW SHE WILL BE IN GREAT HANDS WITH BEN AS HER OLDER BROTHER.
By the way, Lleyton is Ben's #1 fan. He woke up this morning asking if he was going to get to see Ben again today.
