Really, Really, Really Good News!

We just got a call from our agency!

They received 3 LOA's for us today!!
We have a "really" in our title for each LOA!

Yippee Jesus!!

They came on day 41!

We are over the moon excited to get our trio home!!

AND

We also got an update on Melissa!!
BUT
still no new pic.


We will beg for an updated pic before travel time.
Not sure that it will do us any good but 
we'll give it a try!

We are so thankful to have our questions answered!

Melissa does not know any English.
They have told her that she has a family and will be going to America!
She is excited about the news!
(I wonder if she saw the photo album?)
She is a good student, she is polite and she gets along well with others!
She always finishes her school work.
(Of course that makes this homeschooling Momma very happy!)

She loves to do artwork!

When she is not in school she is a sports fan! This will work out great for Hubby and the big boys!
She loves to run and jump!
She has many friends!

I'm thinkin she is going to fit in beautifully!!

Mia's Birthday was on Oct. 14th. She turned 11 yrs old. I just want to get her home before she turns another day older.






We sent her a cake and got some pics back. The poor girl looked a bit nervous.
They sent supper small pics- so I am sorry if they are blurry.

Madeline is turning 6 tomorrow. We are hoping to get pics of her party too!


HaPpY BiRtHdAy sweet girl!

So now we have 5  "6 yr olds"!
Melissa (turning 7 in November), Abby (January), Anna (April), Sam (August), Madeline (October)!

Honestly, it sounds like a whole lotta fun to me!!

Tomorrow we will receive, sign and send back our LOA's!

Thank you Jesus!!
