To every season...


Sometimes God answers us in the most amazing ways. For a long time I have been praying for direction. I had not a whole lot in mind just that I needed to feel like we were on the right path. Well today God answered our prayers. He came in the form of Wills boss who offered him a position back in Pittsburgh. This is an answer to a lot of prayers and fears. We have fallen in love with Australia. The people are amazing and kind, the land beautiful. Great things happened here. Rose blossomed into an amazing young lady who loves school. We have learned to depend on each other for our stability. We received the amazing gift of the newest Bosley growing quickly in my belly. We have made some fantastic friends who I hope we will always keep in touch with. Coming home means help while I am sick and after the baby is born. It means Rose can grow up with her cousins whom she adores. She will get the time she deserves and needs from both sets of Grandparents. We will now get the chance to see our oldest nieces graduated and our youngest ones go to kindergarten. Its hard to believe that in a week and half I will be leaving Australia for good. I am struggling with my thoughts as I write this. I will miss so much about Adelaide and yet I can't wait to be with my family again. Liam has a lot on his plate. He will now have to get the house and the cats home. I can not tell you how I feel for him. He is excited to be coming home to teach! There are a lot of exciting things in store for him. Rose and I will be looking at schools and convincing them that she may be young but she can do the school work. I will get better and then give birth close to my mom who held my hand through Roses delivery. We look forward to coming home but a bit of our hearts will be left here in Australia. There will always be part of us connected to Adelaide its where we got baby number 2. We will always remember our time here with fond memories.
