Quinn is here!

It is Saturday night here in Astana. Quinn is sound asleep. We have been together at our apartment for two nights and two days. It is a team effort and dear Quinn is adjusting quite well. He is sleeping as well as he can and eating a lot. He even watched 30 minutes of The Incredibles.

Thank you everyone for your very encouraging and kind words. It has helped us pass the time and nice knowing you are keeping tabs on us.

We will be in Astana until Tuesday, Nov. 27th, then Almaty until Sunday, December 2, arriving in Grand Rapids at 9:15pm Dec. 2nd. All three of us are most anxious to return home.

At 2:00 p.m. November 22nd we descended the Babyhouse stairs one final time and were met with a lovely falling snow and a warm van that delivered us to our riverfront apartment.

Congratulations!!! I got teary eyed reading this post. I remember leaving the BH with both boys and it is the BEST feeling in the world, second to the plane landing!

Best of luck as you travel home,
Kim

Congratulations! We will miss you here in Astana, but we are so excited for you guys that Quinn is settling in well and soon you will all be heading home to Michigan! Tell Quinn that Rylie already misses him- she often looks to the door during our visit (we think she might be looking for him!) All our best!

Hooray! So happy to hear that you are all doing well adjusting to new full time life as a family of three outside of the baby house. We wish you all of the best as you finish your paperwork and then fly home to Michigan. We hope to stay in touch as we all eventually return to our lives back home. You are all in our thoughts!
