Just received confirmation from our social worker today that we received Lydia's birth certificate last Friday the 25th!!!! This is another huge step overcome due to the possibilities of RENAP (the place that gives out the birth certificates) could have kicked us out for any reason. So....passport was applied for and hopefully all our paperwork will be submitted to the US embassy by week's end!!! We are so very close to bringing her home!!! Hopefully by this time next week we'll have exact dates and will be making plane reservations!!! I just can't believe that she's almost home! We're camping this week again with Greg's family and received the phone call this afternoon - we just need to go camping more often!! (the phone call saying we were outta pgn came on our last camping trip to the conference grounds!!) So before I get eaten alive any more than I already have by the mosquitos out here....i'll sign off. Thanks again for checking in on us and praying!
