The Airport - - He's Home!

This post is long overdue!  We are so thrilled to have our Elder Home!  Here are a few pictures from our adventure at the airport.

Favorite treats await on his bed!
Dad hanging the banner - - almost there!
Front of the house - - ready for our boy!

Waiting for our Elder to come down the escalator.
We watched him walk off the plane through the glass behind us,
15 minutes went by - - no Elder.
Dad trying to spot our Elder.
Guess who just came into view!  We lost it - - tears of joy!
There he is - - what took you so long?!

The long awaited HUG!!
Elder Akina's twin sister was over joyed - -
I had to let go and give her a turn.
Dad's turn - - misty eyed.
This Mama's beyond thrilled!
Here's finally here and we couldn't be happier!
Twin love.

If these shoes could talk.  This is his 3rd pair, they are hot glued
together to make it through his last transfer. 
Mama cried.

There is peace knowing Elder Akina is back on U.S. soil.
He however - - is homesick for Brasil.
Our Elder loved the festive décor welcoming him home.

How about this cake?  Sunday welcome home gathering.
