PLEASE JOIN US IN A BIG OL' HAPPY DANCE!!! GROUP HUG!! GROUP HUG!!
I had just dropped all the kids at the bus at 7:15 this morning, and walked into the kitchen to a ringing phone. Now, not many people call me at that hour, and when I saw it was Comanche, Texas calling (where our coordinator lives) I knew that our day had finally arrived. We are to be in Almaty on September 28 (two weeks from today .. golly!) and will drive to Taldy-Korgan in the 29th to meet our Melanie. We will return home to the US on October 30, just in time for Halloween! Now everything kicks into overdrive ... passports sent off for visas, plane tickets to get. PHEW. This has been a marathon of emotions. I'm delirious that it is over. Thank you all for your support (especially you Brenda!!) Stay tuned, news at 11.
