Here's Where the Story Ends

The journey is over. We are home. E is playing on the screened porch with papa doing puzzles. Life is good. A new journey is beginning. I rocked her while she slept in my arms for hours. I looked around her dimmed room and at her books and toys scattered across the floor. All I could think is "this is what I wanted all along. And this is all she needed. To be held and rocked by someone who loves her for hours." I love you E. More than words can say. I'm not even sure a word has been created yet to describe how I feel having you as my daughter.



  1. Congrats to you both. So happy for you guys!!!

  2. Oh Laura I cannot even tell you how happy this makes me. You all are so lucky to have found each other. What wonderful world it is.

  3. We are so happy that you ALL made it HOME safe and sound. However, the "story" doesn't end here ... this is just the beginning. You have only completed the Preface to your novel called "Parenthood". Each day will bring you; lessons, stories and characters. Without any warning one chapter will end ... only for another to begin.

    I can honestly say "THE BEST BOOK EVER .. is the STORY OF PARENTHOOD". The past 15 years have flown by me, left me with some regrets, triumphs, but mostly with countless priceless memories.

    Hold on tight, you WILL smile, you WILL cry, you WILL want to scream, and it will all be worth every single second.

    Welcome to the club :)

  4. I agree with the poster above- this is where to journey perhaps end but your story begins. Exhale. Rest. Smile. Enjoy. Learn. Love. Cuddle. Take it all in - every sweet, amazing, wondrous moment. Welcome home Nemers family welcome home!

  5. Enjoy! 6 Months Home and when I rock my little one at night, I look around and still feel that ...

  6. Ahhhhh she is here!!!! Oh how I wish we where closer to home right now!!! Send us some pictures!!! We are dying to see her with family and at her new home!!! We love you guys. Hopefully be back home soon... Give her a hug and kiss from her cousins for us... Love yall and congrats!!!
