This is my dear friend Kim. Without her, the heart of her loving, wonderful brother, and the compassion I believe, behind this entire family, Ivy would not have had these 2 seamless trips home! And just so you know the heart of my dear friend... She flew round trip with us both times! She is selfless and beautiful inside and out! And this time we even had the joy of her little girl Annie riding along! 
 I was so taken by the joy in Ivy as she looked out the window and saw all of her family outside of the airplane window that I had to get it on video! This made our family a little impatient so many of them ended up walking right on to the plane. 






 It was a perfect birthday for Brady, who we all lovingly call Bubby! His mom and sister were home and he got to ~fly~ a plane!





 Cassidy was the first one to get her hands on Ivy!












 Can you just feel how happy they were to see each other? Oh my goodness! Beautiful!

 And, well, no words needed for this picture!




 I had never been so exhausted and so rejuvenated in the same moment! Home, at last!

 Seeing how happy Ivy was to see everyone was like medicine for both of us. For all of us! She was passed from sibling to sibling to daddy all night. And even after only a 30 minute cat nap all day, she stayed up until 10:30 just loving every single moment of being home and being loved on by her favorite people! 











 From strangers to friends to family! All of us were strangers at one time, right? I'm so grateful for this big loving family! Beautiful Kim and adorable Annie Kate on the right.










                           Beautiful Amy and adorable Georgea on the right.












Saying Goodbye meant we were staying home this time! 
















 I love these 2 girls! 
They are as genuine as they appear! 
As beautiful in real life as on this screen. 
And as fun to be around as you could possibly imagine!
And though we met in unfortunate circumstances, there is nothing unfortunate about our new friendship and our forever commitment to keep our connection as close as family! 
We love you Kim and Annie Kate! Thank you to everyone in this family, your concern and your prayers have all been felt! Thank you Teddy for the blow dryer :) Meaghan for the special deliveries (especially Ivy's bag of potatoes) Thank you Timmy for always having something sweet to say! Thank you Molly and Daniel, for allowing your precious mom to join us in Boston! I love to watch how she glows any time she speaks of you two! Thank you Tim for giving up your sweetheart every time she chose to sacrifice herself for us! She is an incredible woman,but I know you already know that very well! Thank you my sweet angel Annie, for spending time with Ivy and making her feel so at home while you were around!!!!

Still here praying and rejoicing in awe of the miracle and love this little baby girl continues to give witness to. What happiness and joy to watch unfold, may it continue to strengthen Ivy as she learns all the love she spread across the world for all to see and share. Rest and smile as your faith, love and hope has brought you home.
