Our boys in Haiti

Richnightder and Jerome are legally ours!!

We just got home, turned on the computer and saw email from Vicki. It was outstanding news. She told us that as of October 23, we are in MOI. This means that the boys are legally ours. This day will only be topped when we are flying out of Port-au-Prince and bringing them home FOREVER!! It is getting closer and maybe, just maybe, they will be home in February or March.

This is the last legal step of the Haitian adoption process. After this it goes back to the U.S. side of things for final authentication. Hopefully, Richnightder's DNA tests have been done and the U.S. side of things will move quickly and smoothly. This is where we need the prayers. We are on cloud nine now and I am going to go celbrate with a big bag of Halloween candy. CHEERS!!

Thanks Tifanni, I knew other families in this crazy process would understand the significance of moving along. Soon your boys will be out of Parquet!!

Thomas is getting older and probably growing out of it, so maybe they will take over the "crush on Krissy" role! Can't wait to meet them!

Geralyn,
Hi, I saw you on Jen's blog and wanted to stop by and say hi. AND I'm SO happy to hear you are in MOI, that is a HUGE step to bringing your boys home!!!!!! Congratulations!!
I love your point of view on the 'issues' we were talking about today and couldn't agree more - I'm emotionally exhausted - aren't you??
Oh that may also be the fifth grade Halloween party I just came back from :)
Have a great weekend!!!!
Hugs,
Ericka
