Happy :)

These last few days have been so exciting!  We have been able to skype with our girls a couple of times, which was just so amazing!  It is one thing to see pictures of them but to be able to speak and interact with our daughters and to see them with huge smiles on their faces just filled us all with so much joy!  It was almost as good as being in Uganda....almost.

Today we got another surprise.  We got our biometrics (finger prints)  appt. in the mail.  This is the last step here before getting our court date in Uganda.  We did not expect to hear anything for at least another 5-6 weeks, so this is kinda huge :) Now we just wait for everything to be done on the Ugandan side.  Background checks, bloodwork and finally a court date!

My hope all along has been to have them home by Christmas.  Anything before that will just be icing on the cake!  The experiences of the past weekend have made everything seem so real and makes us all the more anxious to get them home.

But, we will be patient.  We know that everything is in God's perfect timing.

To those of you who are praying and supporting our family through this...

                                    THANK YOU!

 It means more to us than you will ever know!
