So Much To Tell....

We are still in Savannah, Georgia and my Aunt is still the same (in the Trauma IC Unit). Please continue to pray for her and my family during this desperate time of need....I am not sure of when we will be returning home.

As for news on our adoption and travel for Annabelle...everything is on track. We heard back from our Congressman's office that our 797C is currently "in route" to our home. Our agency is telling us that we can be traveling as soon as October 15th and that once I return home from Savannah, I need to get our visas completed. I finally got the mountain of paper work completed and sent off to our agency before we left for Savannah that we received once our LOA arrived. And after checking in with our agency today, both departments (Waiting Child for signed LOA and Travel for our travel documents) received all necessary paper work needed to be completed at this time.

This is all I have for you all at this time...

Again, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone out there who are sending us your thoughts and prayers. it truly means so much to us...

Shell,

I am so sorry for all that your family is going through right now. I am praying for the health of your Aunt & your Mom - it is so hard to go through these times.

In good news, I loved hearing about when you might travel. Woo-Hoo!! I can't wait for you to go, sister!!
