We are home!

We are home.

It was a long day for me. I was so super nervous to meet her and get her from Jess. She did fabulous today. The hardest part for both of us was when we were “randomly suggested for an intense search in security”. Are you kidding me?

It was awful! I had to set her down on the chair and she cried the whole time. Then someone started speaking creole to her and I heard he saying “momma”. So i had to correct her and make sure she wasn’t telling Fedna i was her momma. Then the girl would really cry. For real it was awful. But we made it.

She did great on the plane. Slept the whole way from FL to Dallas. Then the flight from Dallas to Austin was about 10 min. 🙂

She’s not sure of the dog. She seems to always have one eye on him at all times. She is not too fond of her bed. She’s asleep on my chest right now as I type. Thank goodness Aaron and I have big bed now!

Plan for tomorrow is bath, liquid breakfast and then off to doctor. She is a sweetie pie. I’m praying for her momma and papa tonight. Praying peace in their hearts. I took advice from a blog friend Tanya and had pictures of her mom and dad waiting for her and we looked at them tons tonight and she kissed each one. She smiles so big when I show her those pictures!

Okay I’m pooped. Off to bed!

  1. I’m so glad the day went well – other than the searching. Oh my! What a great idea about getting photos of her parents. She sounds like a cutie.

  2. Welcome home, Jamie! WONDERFUL news about the adoption, too!

    Whispering prayers for all of you, the doctors, her family … and the dog! 🙂

  3. It is a beautiful thing that you are doing for this little girl.I am a Peds RN and wish that I could do this as well.But I do work full time as well.I’ll keep your family and that special girl in my prayers..

  4. Prayers for energy and peace for you and comfort and safety for Fedna.

  5. That is one of my favorite girls: Jess! Love her, and I know that Fedna was in great hands the whole way. I am SO very interested in what the docs have to say about Fed. My Micah was born with Spinabifida, and it never goes that long untreated. It is a TOTAL MIRACLE that her lesion did not rupture at some point!!!! Prayers being sent up for you guys and her family.

  6. Oh, Jamie, she is precious and so beautiful. What an amazing journey your sweet family is on!!!! I can only imagine how terrified Fedna is, such a great idea to have photo’s of her parents for her to hug and hold onto.

    Gonna send up lots of prayers for you guys!!! Please give her a hug from all of us and continue to let us know how we can help and especially since I am kind of long distance from you:) please, let us know how we can pray for you all. I know God is already holding you guys!!!

    Woohoo and hooray of the official word on A and S!!!!!! HAPPY DAY!!!!!

  7. Praying the doctor’s appointment goes well, and they can figure out how to get things fixed up for her quickly and with little pain!

    We ended up putting Brit and Fed on an airbed on our floor… Lori said they probably were not used to sleeping in rooms off by themselves. So, we did that and they have slept great every night since. Jeff and I have had to visit other rooms in our house for …. well… you know….

    But I guess parents who do that co-sleeping thing do that anyway.

  8. It makes my eyes sting with tears to think about her kissing her parents’ pictures. Bless her heart.

  9. Yay for progress on the adoption!!!! Fedna is adorable. Our daughter was afraid of our dog at first too. I think they are cautioned to stay away from dogs in Haiti because most of them are for protection not family pets. Now Wislaine rolls all over him and kisses him and even tries to ride him!!!! (Max is a 100# golden retriever, I think Carson is safe!!) Good luck with the hair…. I noticed she has metal snaps in her hair, you may want to remove those and put rubber bands in because I am sure she will get an MRI. ( You may have already known that but I wanted to save you some stress at the hospital) I find that little puffs or braids with a few beads on them work the best. Good Luck at the Dr’s tomorrow.
