Our boys in Haiti

Visa appointment, Thursday morning at 7:30

Your thoughts, positive vibes, happy karma and prayers are encouraged as the very last hurdle for the adoption occurs on Thursday morning with the Consulate at the American Embassy in Port-au-Prince. We are hopeful that since our boys have had their final medical clearances by the CDC, the visa's will be issued on Thursday and actually in the hands of our orphanage director by Friday or Monday. Having said all that, we should be able to travel to bring the boys home late next week.

Many of you may wonder why I am still worried at this stage of the game, and I have one word for you all.........Bernot. A little angel at our creche who is unfortunately caught in the bureaucratic system of egos; doctors, officiandos, and politicos all wrangling to exert their will at the expense of a little boy. I want him home with his family yesterday and they could certainly use our happy thoughts now too. With the way things are in Haiti, you can not count your chickens before they're hatched.

Oh, Geralyn!!! I hope, I hope, I hope, I hope (and I'll throw some prayers in there as well)!

I'd say "it's about damn time" but my mom says I'm not supposed to swear! :)

We'll be praying for you!

we have said a million times that we won't breath a sigh of relief until we are back on US soil with our kids. Not a minute too early!

Congrats on being SO CLOSE! Praying Thursday is a GREAT DAY!
