I’ve said this before – but there is something special about watching a family reunite for the first time in two years. We witnessed first hand last week the tenderness of this moment when our nephew Max returned from his mission in Taiwan.

The excitement was thick waiting for him to get off the plane and you could tell my sister-in-law was anxious. These next two pictures are the pure joy of a mother when she spots her son making his way through the long corridor exit. I teared up just looking back at these photos – so much emotion as is evident on his sister’s faces. ┬áThese pictures tell a story on their own.

We had Briggs right after he left so he looked down and said, “I don’t even know who this is!” It’s hard to keep track of so many cousins, especially when they all changed so much in two years.

We saw two other missionary homecomings while we were there…I wanted to photograph all of them! So much happiness and even more gratitude to have them home safely!
