The prodigal returns.

We are off to the wilderness to pick up our son. I'm expecting a very sweet reunion. (We're told the kids do a 1-mile run...right into our arms. Should be a very powerful experience. It makes me cry just thinking about it. I'll write about it when I get back (in a week or so). In the meantime, please keep us in your prayers.

I know this reunion will be a beautiful one. As a child who made mistakes and hurt my parents, trust me when I say that your son will be grateful for what you're doing for him. If not now, it will happen in the future. I'm proud of you for not giving up, for loving him enough to do the hard stuff. Enjoy this moment and may God bless your family.
Loves and hugs,
Laura

The one-mile run thing is the coolest! Your little doggy is doing well, but misses your little prince. Warm thoughts of J today.
