WE HAVE TRAVEL DATES – AGAIN!!!

Wooooo Hoooooo!! We got travel dates this morning and we are so excited!! What an emotional roller coaster we are right now!! Travel dates mean applying for Visas, running around like mad to get everything ready, packing, cleaning, praying, praying again, and praying some more!!! We never thought we would get to return so fast and we are so thankful we can!

We leave on April 9th to head back to Moscow. I am trying to book flights now and have a zillion phone calls to make at lunch time. We are still working on having our police clearances back in time, so please send some extra prayers up on that one still!!

We cannot wait to see our little guy again. I hope and pray God keeps him safe and comforted everyday and that he knows in his little heart that we are coming back for him. We miss him so much!

As for the baby shower – here is yet another clue from my older sister!

OHHHHHHH AND YOU BABY SHOWER GOERS, DO NOT AND I MEAN DO NOT FORGET YOUR PAIR OF SOCKS!!!!! ;)HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!AND YES RACHEL YOU WILL BE BLINDFOLDED.

Blindfolded with socks on – that’s reassuring!!!!!!!

Wonderful news! You'll be back in Moscow before you know it! When are you leaving? We arrive on April 13.

Good luck with all the packing and travel arrangements.

Tiger & Kar said...

Woo-hoo!! How exciting for you guys! Travel arrangements and all they entail are certainly stressful but so worth your frustrations!

And yes, it WAS us at Dulles the day you came home! We turned around right as you & Troy walked through the ramp thing and I think you & I made eye contact. Small world, huh?

Email me sometime - ip0995@msn.com. Since we're both in Virginia it would be wonderful to get our boys together once they're both home!

Congrats again
Karyn, Norm & Baby C

Oh...I'm so happy for you!! You waited for so long, I'm glad you don't have to wait any longer and things are moving so quickly for you! You will be back before you know it! April is just a week away!

This is wonderful news. Less than a month you'll have your little guy. Congratulations

Dede said...

Great news! I can't wait to see pictures of your little guy.

Joel & Clarion said...

Congratulations! That's wonderful news. But I have to be honest and say that we're so very jealous. On the other hand, it does really help the time pass when we get to share in the joy of other families being brought together. Blessings! You remain in our prayers! We look forward to more good news for you guys.

Your shower sounds like it is going to be so much fun. When is it? You've probably said.

Praying that all that paperwork comes together quickly.

Carey and Norman said...

Congratulations Rachel and Troy! Go get your boy!!

Can't wait to see more pictures. Do you think that you could dress Troy and little one alike? Maybe they could pass for twins...just kidding.
