I have no idea how my heart is supposed to contain all of the joy that I am feeling.

There are a 100 selfish reasons that I wanted my son to finally come home. All of them completely understandable and good, but so small in light of my pure desire to see him experience family life and the explosion of love that has been showered upon him since his arrival home a few days ago.

Here we are Saturday at our favorite park in Kansas City. Gentle Breeze. Gorgeous sunshine peeking through the shade of the trees.My family. Together.

Mattie’s smile is pretty much plastered on his cute little face all day long! This is what it’s all about.
This precious smile makes every bit of this journey worth it.

Sister love. Just when I thought I couldn’t fall more in love with my children than I already am, they look at each other like this, and I’m done for!

Brother Time: Aiden and Taylor loving on sweet Mattie Boy.

Aiden is very possessive and protective of his brother. It is truly priceless. He dotes on him, simply cannot keep his hands off of him, and even reprimands him from time to time.

Awesome big brother Nick with my two beauties Emma and Elia.

Our favorite park!

I adore these two. Nick and his lovely girlfriend Amy.

Mattie loves his Daddy!

My boy! Oh my heart is full of joy!

And Yes, we can go places and we will go places! Mattie deserves to see the whole, wide world.
