At the zoo!!

Kinsey fell asleep while watching her Bible songs DVD

So we were submitted to the Embassy on Wednesday and they only do DNA on Thursdays. I was frantic wed. afternoon trying to get a hold of someone at the Embassy to tell them I wanted to schedule the DNA appt. for the following day. My facilitator was able to make all those arrangements for me and I was able to take our daughter to the Embassy to get her DNA performed. There are 2 other families that are using the same lawyer as us that are coming home too. All 3 girls were together and one of the families is from my agency. It was such a relief to get this done so quickly. If it didn't happen yesterday, we were for sure here longer due to not being able to do DNA until next Thursday. Anyway, that part is done. The Embassy emailed today and needed additional paperwork since we changed lawyers in the middle of the process. I already knew this, so we have those papers ready and will give those to the Embassy Monday. The lab said DNA could be back in Guatemala 1 week from today so let's pray this happens. Gabe is sooo done with this hotel. He is doing well, but at 9 months old he would prefer to be on the ground moving around instead of in a playpen, a walker or being held. He has always been a homebody. So I think he misses home. Kinsey has been a peach as usual. She is an endless pit. I can't keep her out of the food and snacks. She tells us 5 minute long stories in spanish, we video them and then have our friends here at the hotel translate. Last nights story was about Snow White and how you didn't want to eat the poison because you would die.........Hmm!!! Anyway, I will do my best to keep up with the blog. We lose internet frequently down here. We had none all day yesterday. Hopefully it will stay connected for us.

Looks like you had fun at the zoo! I'm glad that you were able to get out of the hotel for awhile. We tried to Skype you today and yesterday, but you were off line. Ethan has been asking to talk to Kinsey. So cute! Can't wait to see what he does when he sees her in person! We will try to Skype later this weekend. Take care!
