Okay friends............

Okay my friends, we have enjoyed our time in VN and are trying to make the best of it. We have gone sightseeing and have eaten in some great resturants. the people are really nice and my girls have had the trip of a lifetime. We achieved our ultimate goal of putting our arms around Kaden. We are in a great flat and have all the comfort features of home......but we are ready to go home. My babies are missing us and we are missing them! It has almost been three weeks. The replacement officier made it in on Wednesday and needs some time to look over our files. We still haven't heard anything from them. Our agency is trying to make the best decision as to how to deal with the situation. It's very frustrating for them because they were told weeks ago that our approval would be on it's way within a matter or days or they wouldn't have sent us. I'm thankful for their help. Please pray that we get some news today and they rush our interview. The travel group behind us has caught up with us. We met them for dinner last night and they are very nice people. Their girls are very cute. Their interview is scheduled for Monday and we would LOVE to be able to go with them! Watching more go home won't be fun.
All this to say, we are fine, our kids are fine, (the poor air quality is starting to get to Kaden and Beckett. We may actually have to see a doctor if we are here much longer.) but pray we get to go home soon. This is an expense holding pattern!

Hi Guys!

I am so sorry you are still in a "holding pattern." I can just imagine that it is becoming more and more difficult. You are at the top of our prayer list! Hang in there!

I had a Route 44 for you today! I can't wait to deliver one to you when you are home recovering from jet lag! Take Care!

I hate to hear that. That was my fear when I realized that Thomas was no longer going to Hanoi with the families. We are praying that everything gets worked out real soon.
