Today was our first opportunity to visit with Luke and Irina since we came back, as we spent all day yesterday completing paperwork. I got to read/hear their new names many times yesterday, and it brought tears to my eyes each time. They are ours officially! It is hard to put to words how joyful I feel when I think about it. As we waited for them to come down for their visit today, I was choked with emotion. I could barely stand the wait! Then they appeared, and my heart skipped a beat! Oh how I love these precious new little lives that God has entrusted us with! Their grandmother also got to meet them for the first time today.
Please be in prayer for our process and paperwork. We are in the home stretch, and I can't wait to be HOME! We have decided to visit a couple more days before bringing them to the apartment, and hopefully make the adjustment a bit easier. I can't wait till we are all together as a family FOREVER! Please pray it is SOON!
