When, Oh When, Will We Travel

Have you ever tried making plans for a MAJOR event without knowing the date or time it would occur? Well, that is the predicament I am in. It doesn't work very well to say, "Could you watch my four kids for ten days sometime in February - or maybe March?" What a wonderful thing it will be to actually know when we are going to pick up Zoe and Marcus. Amazingly, we have found friends (bless you, dear friends) who have been willing to agree to watch our four kids who aren't coming with us, the dog, the bunny and the hamsters for ten days without knowing when those ten days will occur. We have the most self-sacrificing friends in the world! They are awesome!!! Special thanks to Lori & Dan, Kim & Casey, Vicki & Larry, Tami & Rick, Harlan & Jeanette, Erica & Dan, Tami & Mark, Tina & Jeff, Lorinda & John and the many, many others who are helping to bring Zoe & Marcus home!

Our agency person told us to plan on two weeks for Zoe & Marcus's birth certificates to be issued and then we will get a travel date assigned. Well, it's been almost one week since then, so hopefully, only one more week to go. As much as we long to go get our kids, we really need the time now to get the bedrooms ready!


  1. I CAN;T WAIT TO TRAVEL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope we get our date when we travel soon

  2. Everyone I'm afraid that when I start a blog you will no longer get comments from me. BUT you can visit my blog and that will be even more exciting than reading my my comments. I'll write later how you can reach me. Mom, can you help me to start my blog soon? I know you will and once I get the hang of it I'm out of here.


Thanks for visiting. We would love to hear from you!
