  1. What a joy it has been to see your pictures over the past two weeks! She is a doll!! The delay in coming home was not in your plans...but knowing that God has this perfectly worked out is the peace to hold on to!!

    I continue to pray for:
    - the consulate to open up and finish processing your paparwork
    - that Ava continues to bond with you
    - that your spirits are lifted that GOD is in control of all things and bigger then all things

    Love you!! Keep the pictures coming!! The kids are loving seeing little Ava and so excited to meet her!!
