Paul and Chrissy will be home today and starting their life as parents of seven little sweethearts. I mean really besides mine (lol) have you ever seen a more beautiful family?
I've gotten a few texts from Chrissy when they were in Germany. They're exhausted and ready to be home. I can remember that feeling so well that I think I'm starting to feel nauseous again. They will be home this evening. They will start to emerge from their shock-induced coma in about six weeks. They will feel like things are steady in about six months. They will feel like they've found a new normal in about a year.
Remember to cut them some slack, send them some prayers, keep your stupid comments to yourself, and just be a friend. They're going to have a lot of reality setting in as the parents to so many, the parents of three new children, trying to meet everyone's needs, and dealing with the health issues and behaviors that come from living in an orphanage. The amount of adjustment that every single person in their family will have to do is mind-boggling.
Be the hands of Jesus for them.
PS. There's a giveaway at my blog. Come on over and enter to win and you could give the necklace to Chrissy.
