Sorry for the lack of posts this past week - life has been busy! We were happy to return home last Friday (after waiting a week in Alabama for interstate paperwork clearances). The next day we welcomed family (Julia's side hadn't met Hannah yet!) and Sunday we celebrated Charlotte's 23rd birthday. And then the first couple of days of adjustment (and mountains of laundry!) with Nathan back at work. . . I'll try to catch up. We do have LOTS of pictures from the past ten days. =)
Let's back up. . . to Hannah's Gotcha Day. Though we had no idea until a few days before, our loving Father has always known he would add sweet Hannah to our family on February 7, 2009! After Hannah's two days in the hospital following birth, she spent a week with a private foster family in Alabama waiting for her "forever family." (Alabama has a five day period where the birthmother can change her mind following signing consents and so Angel Adoptions doesn't place babies with adoptive families until that time has expired.)
Saturday morning a week and a half ago we left our Alabama hotel very eagerly and drove to the Bartletts' home to meet and receive Hannah. Guess I told that story below. . . So, here are the pictures!
