we don't know

That's the answer to the important questions about our adoption right now. We don't know when we'll be getting passports for the 2 older kids. We don't know when we'll be travelling. All we know is that more passports were issued Tuesday, but they weren't for us. Today and Thursday are holidays in Liberia, so the office is closed. Friday will be our next shot at good news. There's no chance that we'll be leaving as scheduled next week.

It's getting harder to be patient. Yesterday morning at 7:15am we got a call from Acres of Hope. I (Becky) answered the phone thinking that this would be my best birthday ever until we learned that they were just checking on some paperwork details. Then when we heard that some passports were issued and families would be receiving calls, we could hardly wait to see if we got a message. We did get a bunch of birthday messages (which were appreciated), but none of them was the message we most wanted to hear. My sweet hubby spoiled me and tried to make my evening special, but it was bittersweet.

We're incredibly busy over the next few days getting ready for Worldlink's 5th Anniversary Celebration, so it at least gives us something to do other than sit around being depressed. If you have emailed or called and not received a response, please don't take it personally. We haven't been home before 10 for several nights in a row. You'll definitely hear from us after the weekend though, if not before.
