Goodbye to the Carlsons

Tonight we had to say a bittersweet goodbye to an awesome family, but we are so thankful that they will soon be on their way home together.  We love the Carlsons!  It really has been a blessing to get to know this godly, fun-loving, and adventurous couple and to spend time with them during their first weeks with their babies.  Because they were here longer than most of the adoptive families, we truly did get to know them and grow to love them.  Mark and Brenda are wonderful parents, and it was a blessing to watch them as they immediately connected with the twins.
