WE ARE GOING TO KAZAKHSTAN!!!!!

I have turned into a poor excuse for a blogger... and for this I am sorry... but, it's been a hard and long road... and honestly I had to take a break... sorry!

However, we received some 'unofficial' info from the agency yesterday morning to which we screamed, YES!!!! We should receive travel itinerary in the next day or two and the agency said that we will need to be there in days.. (one week at the most)... so what I'm saying is that by this time next week, we'll have seen our kid(s)! This is shocking and exciting... the emotions involved are well... overwhelming!!!
Sorry, I am keeping this short... but, there's so much to do... headed to Dr's office to pick up updated medicals.. then driving to get them apostilled... as well as about 12 other errands (all adoption related).... but, planning on throwing in a surprise or two for my girls... our time as just "the girls" is winding down.. and this is bittersweet for me... :) I am trying to cherish my last few days with just 'my girls' and us as a family of 4! Wow! God is so awesome...
I will fill you in more soon.... thanks for still reading my blog... I promise it's about to come back to life... lol!!
Love, prayers, and hugs.... ~ Lanetta :)

ONE WEEK?!?!?!?!?!?!? Oh my goodness!! Eeeeeeee!!!

I can certainly understand why you have to cut the blog short. Go girl, go! Praying you get the LOI and Visas back on time and without a lot of stress!

So very exciting. I guess when it happens, it "HAPPENS!" for you. :-)

Can't wait to meet your kid(s) along with you. You have been such an inspiration of faith, commitment, determination, perseverance, and joy. I am just so thrilled that it is YOUR TURN!!!

i remember being a bit sad about not being able to call the kids "the boys" anymore. and having that last dinner as just the 5 of us. but, boy...once you meet your new kid(s), it all seems to feel right.
praying for you!

Yippee!!!! I was gone for a week on vacation and had to check your blog as soon as I got back. This is wonderful news!! I'll be praying you get your travel itinerary soon. Oh, I can't wait for you guys to meet your kid(s)!! I'll be praying!

It is a strange transitional feeling to go through adoption but it is true that once you meet your new child it will all feel as if it was always meant to be. Your girls will be fine and loved on while you are gone. It will seem long but one day when you look back on it it will all just be sweet memories. Enjoy these last days as just the 4 of you!

Oh my goodness! I just saw this and am so overwhelmingly excited for you!! I can't wait to follow along with you actual trip. Seems like it will be about the same timing as ours - leaving July 30. God is just too good!
