Everyday lives of the Meabon Household

Sunday, September 26, 2010


Yes, that's right - HARPER IS HOME! We got the good news on Friday but were hesitant to say anything until we actually had her at home. Methodist made the process so easy - we showed up at 9:45am this morning and were in the car by 10:45am. Unfortunately, we didn't get to personally say goodbye to most of her primary team since many of them had the day off. They have been so amazing to work with and we have grown to love each and every one of her team members.

It was so fun to see her experience the sun and a breeze on her face for the first time and the weather today couldn't have been better - I think that was God's personal homecoming gift for Harper.

Jared and I were a nervous wreck this morning. It hit us that the day we've been waiting for was finally here, but along with that comes a huge amount of responsibility and worry. I think Jared drove 20 miles an hour the entire way home! Harper was bright eyed the entire ride home and I'm sure was completely overwhelmed with so many new experiences at one time. Now that we're getting settled, its started to feel so natural to have her here.

Harper was welcomed home by yard art provided by Honey and Grandy (with the help of Joe Kruger and Cindy Knocke - thank you!).

Harper's had a few meals but has slept most of the afternoon. Jared and I keep looking at each other and just letting out huge sighs of relief. Now we can start to be full-time parents - let the lack of sleep begin!

Now THESE are the picutres we've been waitng to see!!! I love them. Whisper in Harper's sweet little ear,that she has already had more prayers on her behalf than most people have in a lifetime. God's plans for her surely will incredibly bless you both,as well as her. "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him".
Welcome Home, Harper.
