double trouble :)

'nuf said.

p.s. thanks for the emails and blog comments of encouragement. every one is treasured and read. and reread. and reread. when you are away from home, the written connection to those you care about is priceless.

p.s.s. phyllis asked how sarah was doing. she still has no idea she is chinese. she only thinks she is an american princess and we will just let her think that :)

p.s.s.s. special thanks to brooke -- your words were completely undeserved but VERY appreciated. thank you sweet girl.

p.s.s.s.s. if you want to get in touch use this email jani.ranger@gmail.com as our regular email is being contrary most of the time.

  1. Hey girlie...we are home safe and settled. Getting back on some sort of schedule but not totally unpacked yet. At least I have the wash done!!! That says a lot.

    Following your blog and others you are with. How is it all going? We need to talk when you get home and are back to your "normal". Gotta catch you up on the latest.

    Looks like all is well...Praise God! Hugs to you. Andrea

  3. Jan,
    Had a great day today. Had a big breakfast and headed out to the park to play and ride bikes and skooters. (Took some great shots of Phoebe playing). then off to Donatos for lunch and dairy queen for the final birthday treat. they all had fun. Phoebe loves her daily gifts and looks forward to them. We have blown bubbles and fixed her hair with the special hair ties. she is happy and sleeping well. I put a fan in her room and she was so happy:) We are so excited for you to get home. Phoebe just lit up this morning when i showed her the pictures of thomas and Abigail. we are all so excited. love you all bunches and anticipate your return. The Fredericks

  4. Continuing to pray for you all! It's been such a joy to follow along on your journey, Jan!! Sending repeated hugs from Indy in your direction!!!! XOXO

  6. She is so beautiful! And that smile is worth a thousand words!
