Court Date

Well, we seem to be back in service with internet!  Yay!!  We have a court date....Monday, April 4.  After this we will head back to the embassy to take care of some things since Steve will not be coming back on the second trip.  And our flight home is Thursday, April 7.

We have gone to visit Julia and Aaron over the last two days.  Yesterday, I asked about seeing Sonya and Dusty, the children that our friends John and Amy Hinz are adopting.  We were not able to see Dusty, but they did bring Sonya out for us to visit with her for about 5 minutes.  We got some great pictures and even a video.  We are posting the video here for everyone to see because it is too large to send via email.

Julia is such a sweetheart and loves playing with toys.  She is always happy to see us and spend time with us.  We just can't wait to get her home, so she can be loved on so much more by our kids, family and friends at home!  Aaron always has a big smile on his face as they bring him to us everyday.  All we can do is show him pictures of our house and of his new brothers and sisters.  We are really starting to feel like we cannot wait to get them home.  There is only so much we can do at the orphanage everyday.  There is so much more we want them both to experience and we can't wait for them to be home and really incorporate them into our lives.  It is so hard to believe that there is still so much more to do and so much more time has to go by before we can get them home.    We must pray for patience : )


  1. Can't wait to see the video! Where do we go to see it? Glad to hear that you have a court date! We still have not heard about our SDA appointment yet - hopefully Monday or Tuesday we will know something. Getting a little concerned about Dusty - can't wait to hear good news - I pray! Glad to hear things are going well with Julia and Aaron. Praying for all to continue to go well especially on on April 4!

  2. Oh I saw Sonya's pictures at their blog! So sweet. I remember her picture on Reece's Rainbow. Glad you got to see her and send some pics to them!
    Praying your court date goes smoothly!

  3. Praying for a fabulous rest of your trip and lots more wonderful bonding with Julia and Aaron! Sam says he can't wait to meet Julia and Aaron and welcome them to the States.

  4. What a little sweetie that Sonya is. I can't wait for both Dusty and Sonya to join their family.
    (-: Their family will certainly be blessed and those sweet babies will finally get to know the unconditional love and security of a family!

  5. We saw the video! For some reason it was not up when I first saw the blog. Thank you so much for posting. Sweet, sweet! She did look VERY TIRED! Thanks for loving on her!
    Amy & Family

  6. Oh my, what a sweetie Sonya is. Darling. I am so glad you were able to see her.

    Boy do I understand that feeling of wanting everything to be over and done with. Hang tight, friends, time does fly by and before you know it you will be on your way home with TWO blessings :)

  7. Hello again! Just keep coming back to see you holding Sonya - thanks from the bottom of my heart dear friend! I get choked up every time! Praying for time to fly. Looking forward to seeing you back here - before we fly over!
    Hope today was Wonderful with your sweet little ones!
