Thank you!

First let me say how much fun the last 16 hours have been. We would
like to say THANK YOU to all of you for the emails, phone calls and blog comments. It has been a long long year and a half since we first started with our homestudy and you have supported us the whole way. For that we are thankful!

I also wanted to ask that you keep Anika's foster family in your thoughts. I emailed them last night to tell them we will be there on the 3rd of February. I received a wonderful email in return and let me just say that while we are overjoyed and thankful to be at the end of this road, they are trying to prepare to say goodbye to a member of their family. They are wonderful wonderful people to have loved Anika and taken care of her when we could not. I will keep this email so that Anika can see how much she is loved by her Guatemalan family.

OK on a happy note I did find out that Anika has the same sleep schedule as her big brother! WOW Could we really get that lucky? She goes to bed between 7:00-8:00 and gets up at 7:00. She likes to have a bottle in the night. (Ok not like her big brother :)) She loves to walk in her walker and loves any toy that moves. In 9 days we will begin our lives together!
Thank you

Tracy, I am so happy for you! We will be praying for you, your family and Anika's foster family. They really are very special people. They continue to help me learn about the country where my son was born. I know that your meeting with them will be joyous!

Yay- a little over a week and Anika will be yours forever!

It's so great that Anika's FM sent you that email. I am sure that will mean a lot to Anika in the years to come...

Hope to see you in GC!
