Farewell Canada (for now)!

I promise, this won’t entirely become a “mom blog.”  But seriously, its hard to resist continually posting pictures like this:

and this:


(my dad has been SO very happy with his first grandchild… my mom has too, but she’s not as photogenic.)

(And wow, is Mike cute with her – but there will be pictures of them later, on this blog that won’t be entirely about baby 😉 )

We are leaving for Rwanda soon: we’ll be moved into our new house and settling in by the end of the week.

I have some mixed feelings about returning:  I am very excited to live in our home, missing our friends and co-workers in Rwanda, and ready to get back to our work.  However, I feel concerned for our little one, and for all of the new “dangers” she will face (besides my nightly concern that she will suddenly stop breathing for no reason).

We have had such an incredible summer in Canada.  People have been so kind and generous to us.  It has been unbelievable how much we have been cared for.  Our family, our friends, and even strangers have done so much to help ease our transition into a family of three.  We have been awed and overwhelmed.

So I wanted to say “thank you” to all of you who have encouraged us, given us gifts, fed us, welcomed us into your homes, provided for our needs, and generally loved on us.

We are returning feeling very blessed and very full.

  1. Bon voyage….I hope to be able to see your complete family one day. You will be in my prayers as you transition back to Rwanda. May all fears dissipate like fog before the morning sun.
