What is the hold up???

Hey friends....sorry to have kept you in the dark on what's happening here.

We're home from our wonderful trip to Georgia. We've moved back into our house and have spent lots of time unpacking and organizing and setting up Josiah's room. We finally have internet access again.

And we're still waiting for our travel call.

*Sigh*

It seems that even though Josiah had his Visa interview last week, his Visa has yet to be issued (normally this happens within a day or 2). We're very puzzled - and a bit worried - by this and have contacted our adoption agency about these concerns. The head of the Korea program has contacted ESWS (Korean agency) to find out what the hold up is. I'm hoping we hear something, anything, before the weekend.

It is SO SO SO hard not knowing. It is SO hard not to melt down.

Even so, we continue to wait and prepare and trust and pray.

And keep smiling...

Nate's wedding 1

....because soon this family of 2 will be a family of 3.

I'll keep you updated.
