The MOI Reign of Terror has come to an end: May14, 2007-September 27, 2007

We are officially out of MOI! PRAISE THE LORD! It looks like the timing should be just about right for us to come home with Mike in about a week and a half. We still need a passport made, documents delivered up to the US Consulate, and then a visa granted, then we're outta here. I am so much more hopeful now that there is a foreseeable end in sight. And Mike will be here to share it with us. It's funny this all started unfolding this morning. I talked with Barbara and she was going to do some investigating. I tried to call her all afternoon and it wouldn't work. I thought it was her phone. Then when I finally did get to talk to her, she said she'd tried to call me a hundred times today and that my phone wasn't working. Even the phones are frustrating here. But we got the good news and things are already in the works to get the passports printed.

Kerwin is having a great (and wild) time playing with the girls up here at the restaurant. We came up for ice cream when I got the good news. Then the kids started running around and turning the place into a gym. So the girls' dad has taken the kids on a walk and he took Kerwin with them. Bless him, I know that will be an exhausting jaunt.

Thanks again for all the prayers, love and encouragement everyone has given us. I love checking my email and your comments. I'll be updating the blog as I hear more next week. Until then, Go Cats!

Okay, Jordan and I are doing a dance. I am so glad this is almost over and you can get home to the good old USA. When we went to Haiti a couple of years ago Jordan got a shirt that says "I Survived Haiti". I think she needs to pass that along to you.

The best things in life are worth waiting for and now you can come home and start your life as a family in your own home.

What is the first thing you are going to do? When we have been out of the country and returned home, I couldn't wait to take a hot bath and eat a baked potato.

Keep us posted.

I have had a hard and tiring week. This news made it all better. I just called Mom and filled her in. She has card club tonight so the news will spread quickly. I'm so happy and hopeful for a return with Mike. Does Kerwin understand how good this news is? I know he has been content in the hotel room and it does not have the same meaning for him. Gotta go for now. I will write more tonight.
Praise the Lord.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! The end is in sight and it can't come too soon, can it? It's been a privilege to walk with you through this journey. Can hardly wait to give you a big hug and to meet Kerwin face to face. He's a miracle, you know. I am so grateful for the protection and provision of our Heavenly Father.

I'll keep praying.

CONGRATULATIONS!! I know the feeling, we got out of MOI on sept 7th and went in may 22.

I was just wondering if the Canadian woman in MOI happened to be named Barb?? We just came home from Haiti Wednesday night with our twins after staying in Haiti for a month trying to get out of MOI and get passports and visa's..she was staying at the guest house with us..if her name was Barb, she's out of MOI and coming home tuesday!

3 siblings adopted through Haiti Children's Home 1 home 3 years ago and 2 home 4 days ago!

Becky, Praising our heavenly Father with you. A verse from this weeks study: Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Ps. 46:10 You are doing so well in the "being still" department. Love, Marcia Burgess
