Airport Party!! We're Home!!

We partied at the Sioux City airport last night as we arrived home with our Meddie.  There were 50-60 people who showed up to laugh, cry, love, and celebrate the moment with us.  We are so thankful for an amazing group of friends!!!  What can we say to so many people who have walked this road with us??

Our wonderful friends blogged about the homecoming over at their blog.  Please click HERE to see their post.  Thanks so much Denise for your beautiful post. 

We are overwhelmed by God's goodness today as we wake up to an amazing Gambella girl playing with dolls and shoes and balloons and cars and on and on!  Is she really home?   WOW!!!


  1. Congratulations Nordstroms!!
    I'm so glad that you are finally done with the adoption. One more child is no longer an orphan.
    Can't wait to see her.

  2. Meddie is so adorable and precious!! She is so blessed to have a family who loves and cares for her. I'm so glad the Lord led you to adopt.
    Hope everything is going well, I know it's gonna be a big transition for Meddie. We'll keep you in our prayers.
