So by now you are probably thinking we should have our daughter home. Evidently the guy in charge of Immigration went on vacation (and we just found that out today). Last I heard he isn't back yet but is expected this week. He's been gone two weeks. Argh.

I will update the blog when I know something. I will update the blog when I know something. I will update the blog when I know something. I will update the blog when I know something...

The wait is finally almost over, friends! Our birth mom went to her appointment today and signed without hesitation! We are so unbelievably grateful to her. We can't wait to see her again when we get to Haiti. She is now forever a part of our family.

The officer in charge at Immigration wasn't in today so he didn't sign off on our file, but we were assured that everything should be fine. The last thing on our checklist is to get Janae her visa. We're hoping she can have that next week. Then we fly off to Haiti to hug the stuffing out of our new daughter.

I know that there are many people around the world praying for our "baby" girl and I want to thank all of you. Someday I'll be able to tell Janae about her fan club. There are people from Minnesota, Texas, Arizona, California, New York, New Jersey, Iowa, Wisconsin, Florida, Ohio, South Dakota and a whole fleet of other states, but also lots of people in other countries (especially Australia), too, that have been praying for her. She is one blessed little girl.

I'll let you all know when we get her here. Promise. :D

I've had a gentle reminder that I needed to update my blog. Thanks, J!

Okay, on Monday, I called and they gave us an appointment for Tuesday. I was beyond excited. Then Tuesday morning rolls around and we hear that our birth mom has a double eye infection and can't open her eyes. *sigh* I call Immigration again and, miracle of miracles, I got through on the first try (it's been averaging about 15 attempts per call). I told them our birth mom was sick and could I please get another appointment. So now we are waiting for November 14th at 11:30 am to come along. So please pray for Janae's birth mom to get better quickly. I think someone from the orphanage was planning to take her medicine. That would help.

I'm tired. Anyone else? ;)
