In the midst of all this packing and moving one thing that remains constant in my mind is the countdown to when I go to Haiti again to see my babies.  I haven't seen them since May and my heart and soul is crying out to hold them, touch them, talk to them, kiss on them and love all over them.

This trip will be lots of fun b/c Maris and Chrystal are both going with me.  Maris went to Haiti about 2 years ago and Chrystal was just with me in May.  They are both so thrilled about getting back to Haiti as well!

I found out this week that we are STILL in IBESR.  (You can see all the steps here.)  I was so hoping to get the good news that we were out.  Not yet.  I don't know anything about our file, just that we're not out.  As you remember earlier in the summer we had a freak out moment b/c our files were not moving.  I was in a funk, but because of so much love and encouragement from YOU I was able to get myself going and get a better perspective. NO freak out's from me now, just more prayer and petition and begging of God to move our files!  I know of people that went in to IBESR after us and are getting out, so I'm praying that we are soon.  I also know there are people still in that have been there much longer than us.  There is no rhyme or reason as to who gets out and when they do.  As Tara likes to say …. TIH!

So to remind you to pray for us and all the familes adopting from Haiti right now, I thought I would show you some pics of my kids that I got yesterday.

Looks like Licia knows just how much I love to match my kids in matching outfits!  Now I just need two more of these for Cayden and Deacon and they would all be so cute!  Story even looks cutie pie in boys clothes!!!!

Look at those two teeth!

I can't wait to get to our new home and get a room ready for this little girl!  We're getting the boys all bunk beds and Amos will have a special place for when he gets home!  I hope and pray that when I go to Haiti in 40 days that we are OUT OF IBESR!
