FINALLY We Have Steven




















Hopefully I will have time sometime soon to share the details but about 6 pm on Wednesday evening Teresa and I AND STEVEN walked out of the orphanage gate. Our visa is supposed to be ready on Thursday and we are getting ticketed for a flight early on Friday morning. Will probably leave the apartment about 2:30 am. It looks like we are going to have to change apartments AGAIN for those few hours.

THANK YOU for ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL of your prayers. It looks like there'll be a new little US citizen celebrating the 4th of July in Idaho.
