Sittin' on ready waiting on go...

We have a Visa in hand and are so excited. This means we can go whenever. However, the flights are all booked. This place is really nice, but I would so like to get home to my babies. The Visa interview was very short sweet and to the point. We ran into some other families who are with a different agency and it makes me appreciate Dillon. We saw these guys at the health checks also, and they told of going in and just "ripping the kids out of the orphanage" The girls were 3 and 4 and seem to be having a hard time adjusting. I can't praise Dillon enough for all that they do. They have been absolutely wonderful in helping us and interacting with the kids. Also, the nannies have really taught the kids alot. Samuel folds his own clothes, picks up his toys, I mean he is truly a blessing.
We don't know what we will be up to if we have to stay longer, but we will let you guys know if we go anywhere. So far we have stayed close as it is very cold and we were not really prepared for that. Oh, Tina, Thomas is one. He is really a cute little boy. I forgot to bring down the port thingy to download pics. Maybe I can do that later. Hope all is well.

I know how ready you must be to come home. I know my heart was sick to be home with my family and I can only imagine the heart ache to get flights. Will uplift you in prayer.

Hi Amy - We will be praying that God will open up a flight for you to come home sooner. The kids are doing great - They were all running around as usual last night at church - I can tell they really miss you too though! We will all try to be on our best behavior when you come to church :) By the way - How is China!! Can't wait to meet the newest memeber of your family!

Amy, I got your e-mail, and we will continue to pray for a flight back home. I know you miss you little ones.
I hope it warms up a little bit. Keep the posts coming. I really enjoy reading about your trip.
