Aaron is doing very well getting along with all of his new siblings. He is testing boundaries and learning the rules here. He is very attached to me and definitely see me as his caregiver. He cries if I need to be upstairs with the other kids while he needs to stay downstairs. He is so curious and needs to have constant supervision for his safety. If I am busy getting other kids baths and brushing teeth, I need him to be downstairs with Steve. Hopefully soon he will learn adjust to our "routines."
We have no pictures of our "homecoming" at the airport. There was a whole bus full of people that were coming up on our church bus with banner and all. Unfortunately, the bus broke down on the way to the airport. Aimee and I came out of customs with the kids and found no one there to greet us. I obviously called Steve and found out what had happened. After such a long journey, this was a very big let down. The group managed to get someone else from our church to drive a 15 passenger van to pick us up. They could not fit everyone so my family, Aimee's husband and 2 of her kids, and Adeye Salem. finally arrived about 2 hours later. Everyone else found other rides back home.....quite a bummer. But these things happen.....we made it and even though it was disappointing, we were so exhausted that we were just glad to see our family and get HOME : )
