"May Day! May Day!"

It will be difficult to forget the day our adoption became "official"... ha! :) As of today, Tony and I are the legal parents of James Arthur, Angela Grace, Jana Sophia and Victoria Joy! Praise the Lord! We will not take them from the orphanage for another week or so as we have more traveling to do across the country to receive birth certificates and passports. We are praying that all will be accomplished in time to catch a flight home by May 16th or 17th. That would be fabulous! Meanwhile, here are some additional prayer requests:
* Pray that my internet will work on my laptop!
* Please pray for our travels Monday through Wednesday to a place approximately 2 hours NE of Kiev (around 8-10 hours travel from Zapporizhia)
* Pray for wisdom and guidance as we enjoy visits with our children
Thanks and have a wonderful weekend! God bless!

We know it can be such a hard time waiting to get to take the kids from the orphanage. We had a few hangups with Jaryd's passport. We will keep you in our prayers as you finish up the paperwork. You can see that the end is near soon and it is so hard to wait. The Lord will sustain you.

This is indeed a day you will always remember. They are your's! Just wait until "gotcha day". You can't even control your emotions. Just enjoy the moment. It passes so quickly.

Safe travels and a speedy finish.
