what a whirlwind!

Well, for those of you who do not know, we are here in Guatemala. We arrived thursday and are not leaving this place without Kinsey. So next time you see us in person, we will have our beautiful daughter with us. It is a very long story and some know it already. It was miscommunication between several parties involved, so after praying about it for 1 week we decided to finish the process down here. Kinsey has her passport and we are being submitted to embassey on Monday. DNA kit already at embassey and the testing should happen wed. or thurs. I heard they only test on Thursdays, but then heard possibly wednesdays and thursdays. After that we just have to wait for those results to be tested back in the states then once the US Embassey gets those results, we will get our appointment. So maybe we will be here for 2 weeks or so. Danny's mom is here with us so that has been a great help. Kinsey is great as always. It has not hit me yet that she is here with me to stay and this is not just a visit trip. My goal is to be home before my brother's birthday which is March 18th. I will try to post as often as I can. As you can see I have been here for 3 days and just now have time to post something.
