Check this out!!!!
Right here is some some seriously important paperwork!! It took many months of work and preparation to actually get these! Many hours of blood, sweat, and tears! Ok, well maybe not blood. :) Actually come to think of it, we did have to give blood once! Anyway, we have a court decree, 2 original birth certificates, and 2 passports with Visas all bearing the names of
Victoria Margaret Hope Westbrook and Anna Michal Faith Westbrook.
Woohoo, that is amazing! Thanks to all of you who prayed! We could not have gotten through this without you!
I won't go into the gory details of how our day went, but suffice it to say that it did entail waiting and driving at fast speeds and waiting in traffic and sitting in hallways waiting for doors to open and paperwork to be done! :)) The main common factor in all of this is as usual the waiting. I am beginning to think that God has been trying to tell me something all along this adoption journey. Cause I know this is not the first time I have complained about waiting. Hmmm....
Well anyway, we are busy packing up and getting ready to head to the airport in about 10 hours. Yes that will be about 6 pm Colorado time that we will be heading to the airport. And by 10 pm Colorado time, we should be landing in Frankfort! Just so you know!! Please think of us as you go to bed tonight and maybe say a prayer or 2 for safe flights and the girls to do well!
We told the girls we were leaving on a big airplane tomorrow and heading home to America.
Oh, yea, the place you guys keep talking about nonstop! Sounds good to us!

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
