Janae is home!!!

YAY God!!!

Stay tuned for the whole adventure (which will likely be done in small installments).

Pray for at least some semblance of sanity for all of us in the coming weeks and months! Many thanks!

And now the moment we've all been waiting for...


We'll go pick her up sometime next week (forgive me for not broadcasting the particulars on a public website). If you need to know the exact time and such, email me (I'm thinking most of you know how to do that).

We are rather excited (as you can well imagine) and are feeling a bit crazy today. :) Thank you so much for all the prayers and support. We hope that you won't forget us now that the real fun is about to begin. ;)

Janae has a visa appointment tomorrow at 7 am sharp! WOO HOO!!! The nice woman I spoke with said that she would email us right after the appointment to let us know how it all went. I wonder what Janae is going to think of all this. She has to go to the appointment. Do you think she has a clue that her life is about to change (and get a tad bit cooler)?

PRAY THAT IT ALL GOES WELL, PLEASE!! (Yes, I am shouting!) biggrin.gif

So stay tuned for hopefully the last update tomorrow before we fly off to Haiti! Woo hoo!

I just got off the phone with a lovely woman at the Consulate office. She confirmed that they received our documents and they were turned in for approval on December 28th. She is expecting to give us an answer regarding our situation on Monday, January 7th. She told me something interesting. When we adopted Zay, you could have a visa appointment and still need to come up with more documentation. She said she changed the process so that the documentation comes first and when they say you can come for your visa appointment, you already have approval. That's SO much better. In other words, if she gives us a visa appointment on Monday, that means we can officially pick up Janae. I'm trying not to get ahead of myself since we all know that bumps happen, but it is getting SO close. :D

I thought all my faithful readers would also like to know that our oldest is older today. Zay is now 5. Amazing but true. He will be on a major sugar rush as he will be eating cake several times in the next two days. I think he's okay with that. ;) Last night we said goodbye to four. I asked him several questions about his expectation about being five.

"Do you think you'll grow taller?"


"Do you think you'll get smarter?"


"Do you think you'll listen to your mom and dad more."

Dead silence.

"Do you think you'll TRY to listen to your mom and dad more."

Nod of affirmation.

We'll see. ;) Hey, at least he's honest.

So tune in on Monday. At least we have a busy weekend ahead of us so the time should fly.
