Not much to say as of today. Still no word from the Embassy. Just praying and trusting in the Lord's timing of it all!

I miss my other three children something fierce! Thanks to our amazing family, I know they are fine and having loads of fun without us! If you read this guys, I love you and miss you so much!! I'm sorry! I know I told you I wouldn't be gone as long this time, but here I am and it's now been two weeks!! Keep praying! The Lord is faithful!! He will bring us home!! Soon and very soon we will all be together, once and for all!

Jeremy is probably going to go ahead home this weekend. Please pray for us as we do not like being apart! It has been wonderful having him here with us! I miss him already and he hasn't left yet. ; )

Thanks to all of you who have been praying, believing, hoping, reading, trusting,...right along with us! We truly appreciate each and every one of you!

Sorry it's been so long!

Well, as I'm sure you figured we are still in Haiti. We have received the news that we are ready for a visa appt but no appt has been scheduled as of yet. Hopefully, we will receive it next week! We are having a great time with the kids while we wait! Jeremy flew in last Tuesday and the kids are really enjoying having their Papa here too! We plan to check in with the Embassy yet again on Monday. Thank you all for your continued prayers! The Lord is faithful and we are seeing His hand at work!!

Busy Busy Busy

Thanks to Sandy, I can post these arrival pictures! She e-mailed the ones she took when I arrived. No laughing please! ; )

It was a busy day today! We got up nice and early, as usual, and had pancakes for breakfast. The kids had church, we had cake for two little girls' birthdays, then the fun of the day.....we had three inflatable pools and threw a pool party! I wanted to post pictures but realized I forgot my cable to load them on the computer so I'll have to share pictures when I get back. They had soooooo much fun!! I can't wait to show you pictures.

Tomorrow we will go to church and then we are going to have pool time for the older nursery kids! I'm sure they are going to LOVE it!

Thank you all for continuing to pray for us. We hope to be home next week!

Apparently it's time!

Update: I'm leaving today! I'm flying on frequent flyer miles so this was my option. I'll try to post updates as I have them! Thank you to all who are praying!!

I am excited to tell you that I will be in Haiti by Monday! We are expecting to have our visa appointment next week! So, I'm checking flights and will be leaving very soon!! Please pray for me to be able to get the flights I need as well as for things to continue to move along as they have been! God is so good and so faithful! We are overwhelmed by His grace that continues to be so sufficient! Our God is an awesome God!!

What a blessing!

"Yeah, I'm cute! I know it!!

"Excuse me, but has anyone seen the large ribbons for my hair?
These small ones just aren't going to cut it!!"

Finally Finished!!

Many of you may remember this post of the boys' room. Yes, it's been done for a while. We finished their shelves and they have different bedding(thanks to the Mielke's), but otherwise it has been done for a while. The girls' room, though, took much longer. I had the goofy idea to make the blankets and pillows instead of buying them. I'm glad I did, but man it took forever!!! At any rate it is finished!! Their room is officially ready for them to come home!

We have all three passports and are waiting for our final approvals from DHS! We could possibly have those in the next few days. After that, we are on to visa appointments!! Praise the Lord for our children coming home soon!! We are hearing the Embassy may be closed next week, so we'll see, but no matter what we are one day closer!! Praise God!!
