We have waited SOOOOO long to receive the news we got today. After many many delays we are finally really on "Any day now" mode! Please pray that we do not hit any more of those painful brick walls and that we will very quickly be able to go and pick up our darling children. Please pray pray pray for us!!!

I'll share more as soon as we get the "ultimate" news!

Meanwhile, a quick update~ We are at the hotel in Hayward. I can't believe it is already Friday. I can't say it has really been that fun so far. The kids have been really wound up and getting into way more trouble then they do at home. It's been a bit exhausting. Today is starting off on a much happier note, so there is hope. I am VERY excited about our plans for the weekend. Early tomorrow morning we will have ourselves another road trip. This time it will take us to a party for my Grandmother's 80th birthday. We will be hanging out with TONS of family members that we have not seen in a long time. We are especially excited to see my grandparents, my parents, and my brother and his family. I've really missed them.

After the party we will return to Hayward and plan on staying until it is time to head to Haiti which will hopefully be in a few days or weeks if there are no problems (PLEASE pray for no problems!!!)
