Good news...maybe

I'm finding it much harder to blog now that it's just me and Kerwin. Last night we were all set up on the computer and then the internet went down. Oh, well. We had a productive day yesterday. We did not get to do school because we went down to MOI in the morning. We arrived at about 9:30 and stayed until 1:00. After sitting there all that time we were told that our papers were signed and were ready to go up to the Haitian Immigration. However, I am not getting too excited yet. First, I don't know if I can actually believe this. Second, even if they are signed it can be days until they make it up to Immigration. MOI will not release these documents up to you to make the 5 minute drive yourself. Oh no, they much take them up for you whenever they are good and ready. So, I will get excited when we find out that the documents have made it to Immigration. The good news is, until now, the news has been that they are "working on them" so at least this is a different response. I think that is progress here.

Kerwin did really well in MOI. He mostly made things with his pipe cleaners and colored in his coloring book. I met a Canadian woman who was adopting. She was very nice and we talked for nearly an hour. It was so nice to have someone I could talk with to pass the time. You get so discouraged just sitting there. After MOI we went out to lunch and then went to the Mega Mart which is a little bit like a Sam's club. You can buy electronics, foods in bulk, and you have to have a membership card. When we got back we crashed for about 45 minutes and then we went up to dinner with the Yoders.

After dinner we got to talk to Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa Fishin' on the web cam. After we got kicked off the internet, we started talking with a man who is here working with a special needs orphanage. He as traveled all over the world working with special needs kids and families impacted by HIV. He had incredible pictures on his laptop. Kerwin sat at looked fascinated. He loved the pictures of the African animals. He also got to see pictures from Belize, Italy, France, and the Caribbean.

Today we will have school and the usual play time and swimming. Kerwin is now learning to answer "why" questions and learning the alphabet in order. Because he did not learn the ABC song but just to identify the letters, he does not necessarily know them in order. So we are up through "n" learning then in order. We will wait for good news today. I will try to update the blog as soon as I here something.

I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I am praying all the time for you and Kerwin. The bad news is I'm praying more than studying for my test today. Maybe if you will pray that I will be miraculously smarter than I am for my test it will all work out. I'm not sure if that's how God plans for it all to go down, but it works for me. Love you two. Have a great day.

Yes!!! Getting closer to the finish line! (do you see me pumping my fist??!!)

It's just amazing how quickly Kerwin's world view is expanding. Just think.....he learned about four different countries and Africa. No wonder he was fascinated. All in all, I'd say he'd had quite a day of it. Bet he slept quite, too!
