1) We have the most awesome blog readers! We are very encouraged at your comments, even when they are repetitive. Keep them coming.
2) God has answered. Thank you for praying. We are still looking for an apartment, so keep praying for that. They are looking as we speak. High speed internet, God. You can do it. for your name’s sake.
We have had peace amid some craziness. The 11th was a pretty crazy day with some anguish, a little soul searching, and a lot of tears and conversation. Faith and dependencey has been the theme of these days. It hasn’t been easy or clear all the time, but he’s been good to us.
We have been matched. We are going to hold back the details for now because things are volatile and this is a big change for us, the little guy (yes, I said guy), and our families. But details will be coming soon.
After long deliberation and prayer and discussion and stuggle we have been matched with little Sam (that’s what we aer going to call him). He is a funny guy, and really cute. He is a little small for his age, which is 20 months, but that was not unexpected being in an orphanage and all. We got to start our bonding today, and we will be ablet o go back again this afternoon for a little more time.
It is all very surreal. We are both sort of amazed that we are becoming parents at all. Someone might have really blown that one, but it’s too late now. We’re here. It is also crazy how we are becoming parents. One minute we were talking and hanging out with doctors and our coordinators. 3 minutes later we were sitting in a room all alone wth our new little boy, no questions asked. What the crap is going on?!
We don’t have a lot of time right now. Hopefully we will be able to sit down and type out the whole story pretty soon, and it is a crazy one. All this stuff depends on our internet access. We have been coming to this one internet cafe everyday so far, but that doesn’t allow for skype or anything like that, so pray for high speed in our apartment.
Check out our video of the trip over:

We love you guys. Thank you for walking with us and praying. You are keeping us going.
