Miracles for Mila

Today was a miracle of a day!! We got Mila's new birth certificate that lists us as her parents! For many reasons it was a miracle to get it done in one hour. Some families here have had to wait weeks. Our God is good and He paved the way though! Tomorrow we will get her passport and have GOTCHA DAY!!!! That means Mila will spend her first night out of the orphanage tomorrow night...which means TONIGHT IS HER LAST NIGHT IN THAT ORPHANAGE!!!!  Thursday morning we will take a flight back to the capital city and HOPE to pass the medical exam, finish things up on Friday and head for home Saturday. That is a tall order but I know it can be done! Please keep praying and specifically pray for the medical exam that she will pass without any issues. In my eyes that is our biggest hurdle. It is entirely possible that we will be home this weekend!!!! Oh I can't even imagine that yet!

I still don't have internet and likely won't until we are back in the capital. We are at a cafe now and going to visit with Mila in a little bit. It will be the first time I've seen her since benig back. I can't wait to snuggle her!!!

Thanks for the love and prayers! Keep 'em coming!
