This is not our child! I want to be very clear before we move on any farther. This is not our child! This cool guy belongs to some friends of ours. I have actually posted these pictures without their expressed written consent, so hopefully they will not disown us as friends. Guys, if you’re mad, sorry. I will remove the offensive images as soon as possible.
We do have some news, and to go along with it I wanted you to see a real live child who is in the same situation ours is and will be in. Parents, thank you in advance for allowing this. He’s a cool guy and a good looking kid. We hope to be so lucky.
We received a phone call a little over a week ago with some great news. There is a lot to say, but to sum it all up we basically found out that our letter of invitation to travel was in DC. The letter is required to get an entry visa, and we thought it would be a few weeks before it came, but it showed up.
Then we got a call a few days ago saying that we need to get our visas by March 3rd and that we would be traveling sometime soon. The best estimate we have right now is that we will travel around the second week of March. We will be in country for somewhere around 2 months, which puts us back here with our new baby around mid-May if things go well. So we just have a few weeks to get some things set up at the house, stock up on some last minute or forgotten baby things, and figure out how things will function while we are gone. Oh, how we will be missed, I am sure.
Today as I type this the current temperature where we are going is -11 F. The high for today was -9. Not good. We’ll have more news soon, but please keep praying for our process. Thank you so much for hanging with us. We’re not there yet, but we’re closer than we’ve ever been.
