Welcome Home, Emma Kate

If Emma Kate had a good night last night, we knew they would be coming home today.  And there was a lot of prayers for a good night.  Those prayers were answered. 

But getting out of the hospital in Honduras is such an ordeal.  It is a process, much like everything else.  Nicole was dismissed around noon.  The baby's doctor did not get there until after 2:00.  It was 4:00 when Nicole called and said they were finally in the car.  It was just about 5:30 when Matt pulled through the gate.

Big Sister Haley and Grammy were waiting.

The kids were just starting to go in the house for showers.  They all wanted to see Emma.  We told them they could come see her tomorrow.  They were so understanding.

I put Purell on Haley's hands and let her hold Emma first.
While Matt was overseeing that, I was Purelling my hands.  I could not wait to get my hands on that little girl.
She is so little.  And so sweet.  And so beautiful.

She arrived with a full pharmacy.  She will be on lots of medicine for a few days.

Thank you for the many, many prayers.

p.s  If you are friends with Nicole on facebook, she has posted some great pictures.
