Still waiting...

 Yesterday we had several little surprises, one being that our paperwork for Zeland's visa interview is being submitted once again. The first time it was submitted the US Embassy was not happy with the way some of the documents were translated. So they had to be redone. Hopefully, they will be happy with the new updated version! Our second surprise was photos of Zeland! We were not expecting to get any new pictures of him and one of the employees of our adoption agency was in Ethiopia last week and took pictures for us! He is getting so big!

We knew that bringing Zeland home would be a long journey. However, over the last weeks the journey has been unbearable. Each day we anticipate a call notifying us of our travel dates. We still do not know when this call will come. We are making the best of it and are enjoying each day with Lily. We receive much joy from our energetic and enthusiastic 5 (almost 6) year old!
How cute is she? She picked out her own outfit! Love it!
