Today was our sweet Clare bear's second birthday. We were hoping it would also be gotcha day but that will be tomorrow (my granddaughter's 1st birthday!).
It has been a real treat showing my mom and Madison around our city and letting them meet all the nannies.
We got to see Malachi's great grandma again today for her to say her final goodbyes. It was very sad but also wonderful to see how much he is loved. We also got to find out that when he had heart surgery when he was 8 months old that his grandma went with him. That had been on my mind, wondering if my little guy had to go through that all by himself. I'm glad to know he was loved on during that time.
Yesterday we went to a puppet theater and got to see a very cute children's show. Then after that, our sweet friends took us to a mall that had an ice skating rink and a bowling alley. We played ping pong at the bowling alley and laughed so hard, it was great.
Starting tomorrow we get to have our kids and start the real process of getting them home.
Please pray that our embassy appointments go well. There was paperwork we didn't realize that we needed that Mel had to send. Hopefully it is the right stuff and nothing additional is needed from him.
If everything goes well we should be landing at Dulles on Thursday at 2:45.
Here we go...
