We are just over six months past this day--

--when two wonderful, yet strangely unfamiliar, boys stepped into sight and into our family, expanding the loving capacity of our hearts in fanstastic ways. After the heartbreak of paperwork delays, it has now been almost four months since all six of us Tappers have been together under one roof. I remember that it was around the four-month mark when I began to feel comfortable with our family after bringing Ethan home from Ukraine. I am beginning to feel that sensation again. It's the comfort that comes from togetherness. It's that sense that we know we belong together. We know how to belong together. Amazingly, most times, we can simply enjoy being together without having to think about it, work so hard at it, overcome all the obstacles opposing it. What a relief and a joy!



Regarding life together and getting along with each other. . . . Just love one another! . . . . Keep it up; get better and better at it. 1 Thessalonians 4:9-10
