A Wonderful Surprise

Tori, Jude and Tess

On our last day in Scottsdale, we had the best morning...we had the opportunity to meet another World Child family that brought home a little girl and boy from Vietnam. They also experienced a long wait so we had lot in common. Through the yahoo group Nancy posted about living in Arizona to my surprise and I contacted her to say we there for a short trip.

Tess and Jude were born right around Tori's birthday as well. Nancy brought the kids to play at the Westin where we were staying. The weather was not great, so we spent the first hour playing in the water fountain at the hotel. The kids loved playing in the water and picking out the rocks. They were soaked when they were done, but boy did they have fun playing in the water!

They also were intrigued by the staircase.

As the weather cleared, we took the kids out to the playground where they had fun on the climber as well as running around the play area collecting flags that were used to mark off things (oops). They had a great time playing together and Nancy and I enjoyed sharing our stories of our journeys since bringing our children home. Nancy took these great pictures of the children.
