Quick update

We did not get the passports today. We find out in the morning when we should get them and what our new schedule will be. But one thing hasn't changed....GOTCHA DAY!!!  Yep, this is the last night our boys will be spending in the orphanage! Tomorrow morning, no matter what else is going on, we bust out our boys!! So excited!! How are we celebrating you ask, why, filling out paperwork of course!! LOL!!

Please pray for us and for our little guys the next few days. They love having a mom and dad to love on them and play with them, but it is still going to be traumatic for them to leave the only home they've ever known. And I am not sure how Jackson is going to feel getting back in the car again after last time :(  So please pray for calmness for him and a peace that can only be given by God. Please pray that medicals go well and that no problems are found or x-rays to be taken. If we get the passports in the morning there is still a chance we could do medicals tomorrow, otherwise it will be Wednesday morning. Pray that all goes smoothly with the paperwork for their visas, which we should get in the afternoon on the day the medicals are done. Pray for Joel and I as we step into the parenting role 24/7, which is new to us.

Please PRAISE GOD with us that these two boys will be orphans no more!!!! Praise Him for leading us here to our sons, and for the lessons we've learned along the way, and for bringing us closer to Him through this process. PRAISE HIM!!
