…Peace…

There is no peace like having your entire family home.  We were able to have Nico here over the last weekend and I just can’t describe the incredible feeling of peace that washed over me, having her here.  After many long months of not having contact with her, worrying about where she was and who she was with, I could finally exhale. We could all just let go of the worry and anxiety for the time being.  Nico came home just a couple of minutes before dinner on Friday night.  As we sat and held hands at the table to say grace, I saw her almost melt into her seat with a shudder of relief.  I felt the same way.

After dinner, Nico dashed upstairs with her sisters to turn up the Britt Nicole CD, dance and let loose.

HPIM3401 I snuck up to their room and snapped this picture in the middle of the dance-a-thon.  I just love how happy they are!

All in all, it was a wonderful weekend.  Nico was so happy to get back to church and she was given such a warm welcome-back! There was so much joy in being able to go as a family.

HPIM3408 Over the course of the weekend, Nico told us that she definitely wants to come back on the weekends, like she used to.  We continue to pray that her Mother can cooperate and communicate with us and that she will allow us to have more time with our girl.

HPIM3417 I am so blessed to have these beautiful girlies in my life. I am thanking God for a beautiful weekend of having our entire family home, enjoying time together.

I super love that last picture! I am so glad that it was a good visit and that she wants to come back. I am praying that her mother sees the benefit to allowing her to come home and makes it happen.
