I write this at the end of a very long and exhausting stressful day and with tears in my eyes I can say all ended well! Our paperwork was processed and we are going home! I will give more details later but must get Hannah down and pack up and get to bed! We leave at 6:15 a.m. tomorrow for the long flight to London. Blessings to all of you who prayed! I so appreciated getting the comments from dear friends and new acqaintances rooting for us on the other side of the world!

The pictures above are of a beautiful Russian Orthodox church we visited today and also of us with another couple we have been traveling with on this adventure!

WOW!! I know you are too exhausted now from all this "adventure", but someday all the run around will add to Hanna's story, making her's unique and all the more memorable for the extra effort it took to have her join with her family. Love to you as you journey home!!

We're so happy for you guys! It was great to be with you in Almaty. We'll be praying for you. Joshua's biological clock is all messed up. He's been crying most of tonight and here I am writing this at 4:30 AM. We could use your prayers too. We would love to see your great famly and meet Bob sometime soon. Take care.
