In Brief..


 
We drove to Luray, VA last Friday for the 2015 Reece's Rainbow Reunion.
 


 
 We spent 4 wonderful days hanging out with ALL of these people... 
 
 
This is NOT everyone who attended the reunion. 
 

 
This is ONLY those who were able to show up for the group pictures! 
 
 
Oh My Gracious!! 
 
 
There were so many people that I got lost trying to match babe with family!
 
 
I finally just gave up!
 
 
It was too much for my brain to process.
 
If you can't tell... It was a LOT of people!
 
YES.  I CRIED.  Seeing all the families with all those former orphans.  Yes. I cried!.
 
This is another LOT OF PEOPLE group...  See my boys smack in the middle?  These were SOME of the Ukr*ini*n families and kiddos...
 
 
These four fight HARD for the orphans in their country.  We have our sons because of them. This was their first reunion.
 
 
8 months ago, John and Andre were sitting together at an orphanage wondering if they would ever have a family.
 
 
 
The sweet lady in the middle of them... Our hero facilitator on her first trip to the United States!  We were so so excited she was able to come to the reunion. 
 
We cannot thank her enough for all that she did for us this past spring.
 
 
We rested.
 
 
Played.
 
 
Bounced.
 

Boated.

 
Swam.
 


Caved.
 

 
Mined.
 

 
 
Hugged Yogi.
 
 
 
 
Met old friends.

 
Took the annual picture with Andrea Roberts - Director of Reece's Rainbow.

 
2010 - 2015
 
And had a smashing great time!!
 

 
Tomorrow I am off for the LAST convention of the year in Atlanta, Georgia.
 
Goodness the past 6 months have been a whirlwind.....
