"Take an action each day that alleviates suffering in the world. Bring light into darkness."
-Angeles Arrien

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
--Mother Teresa

We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other

We are home!!!

Well the flight from Hell is finally over and we are home safe and sound in our cozy home. We were thrilled to see our family and they were thrilled to see us and the new arrivals. The babies took to everyone and were on their best behaviors even with the time change and jetlag. We are so happy to be able to start our life as a family of seven. We missed our 3 older children so much. A month was way to long to be away from them.

It is so strange to leave Hanoi and return to the US after almost a month. It gives you a whole new perspective on your life. I am somehow humbled by the whole experience. I wonder if some of you BTDT have also felt this way?

Heather, Mark, Meliah and Khai,

We're glad you're home safe and sound. Have a great Thanksgiving and we'll talk soon. I'll send you pictures of Owen once we catch our breath!
