Home

I'm thrilled to be writing this post from home.

Wow, I think I'm in a bit of shock. We finally reached the finish line. We started the adoption process about 18 months ago and it feels wonderful to have our whole family together for the first time. (Side note: we filled out the first piece of adoption paperwork on Jan 1,2007 only 8 days after Griffin was born.)

Believe it or not the flights home went very well. In the 24 hours of travel Griffin only had about 2 or 3 hours of "freak out time". Yes, we were one of those couples with a screaming baby stuck on an airplane with no where to go and no way to get him to calm down. I think Griffin realized that if he acted the same way on the next two flights we'd put him in the cargo area therefore he was an absolute angel for the remainder of the very long day.

Connor and Lana met us at the airport along with Grandma T and Papa, proudly wearing their hand-crafted Big Brother, Big Sister T-shirts. There were tears, hugs and kisses for all. We were also greeted by welcome home signs from our Churchill Court family.

I don't know who's luckier: for us to have him or for him to have all of you. Thanks family, friends and co-workers for your support.

I believe we are all fortunate to have you and Griffin. You have taken us to another world to bring home a lucky little boy that we have loved from the beginning of this blog.

To Amy, Griffin, and the Tired Cowboy,

We are so happy to hear that you made it home safely! Sounds like Griffin did great! We hope Liam does as well, but something tells me our mover and shaker is going to be all over that airplane! :)

We look forward to staying in touch, especially around the end of November when the Wolverines put a thumping on the Buckeye$!

We also look forward to meeting 'two moore' someday on a pass thru of cincinatti.

Ben, Kerry, and Liam

Ps - we'll be commenting soon on the Tired Cowboy Blog - that was an absolutely classic blog!
