We are finally FOUR!!

Sorry it has taken us so long to post. We arrived home on July 7th. We were greeted by many family members. Alayna and Nate did pretty well on the plane rides, as we changed planes 3 times for a total of flying hours to be 15. Once we landed in Detroit Alayna and Nate became American citizens. Our first night at home was sleepless. It has been 5 days since we have been home and we have made it to our own bed. Alayna has picked up many new English words for example, Dora, soap, shampoo, water, the dogs names and of course mama and papa. Most of her language is related to her bath time being that she is a water lover. Nate has just started withPaige, no, and goodbye. Oh and how can I forget his chants of mama at 2am, 3am,.... They are so much fun, all of the sleepless nights are worth it. We have taken many pictures since we have been home which I will put on in the next day or so. Alayna and Nate went swimming in their pool the other day they had a blast. Alyana has a big wheel that she rides every chance she gets. Although I think the outside play gym is her favorite. Nate has really started to come out in the last two days. He pets the dogs and uses the slide on his own. His facial expressions are priceless. Chandler has been back to work the last two days and I have been home enjoying every minute. We will post new photos soon so be on the look out. Love to all The Efland Family.

So glad to hear you are home safe! Sleepless nights? Tell me about it! You won't get a good night sleep EVER again. Just keep smiling.

What a joy to be kept awake by the sweet sound (albeit screams) of being called momma! So happy for your family! The children are beautiful :-)

Hello,

I would really apprciate this greatly, thank-you kindly.

In your earlier times of adoption, I noted that you were shown kids who may have been less than perfect (the girl who looked abused) and the statement was made that none of your request were met and you all were upset. I do hope that someone has looked past the outsides of those poor kids and have taken them into their homes. Maybe I misunderstood the blog.
