My how they have grown

We received this photo yesterday!!! It is so awesome to see how the girls have grown and changed. We cannot wait to have them in our arms to share with them the love that has grown in our hearts over the last 2 & 1/2 months. We leave for the airport in about 30 hours. Please continue to pray for the girls and the trip. We will try to blog through out if the Internet is working.

this is the day the Lord has made - let us rejoice and be glad in it!

7 months and growing

Today Stella and Eva turn 7 months old. The wait to travel to get them seems like an eternity. But we did receive good news that they are indeed growing. As of April 1 Eva is up to 11 pounds and Stella is 8.8!! We are still praying that we get through the courts quickly. We have seen some cases get through in 4 weeks and a rare case or two take 4 months. Most cases are more at 6 - 8 weeks. As we round week 5 we are being optimistic and tentatively planning to travel in May. Please continue to pray for growth and health for the girls. The report we received said that Eva puts everything in her mouth and pushes away items she isn't interested in and that Stella is playful. It is amazing how we are clinging to those little facts as if they were a life line. Thanks to all of you who have supported us through this long journey. We so look forward to it coming to fruition. May God bless you!
