We can see the finish line

 We can see the finish line

 Today was the day we have been waiting for since we adopted Keyara over 2 years ago!  The day when she would be interviewed and hopefully granted a Visa to come to America with us.  Thank you for all of your encouraging notes and prayers.  We are thrilled to report that Keyara passed her interview and we have been told that we can pick up her Liberian Passport with an Immigrant Visa to America in it next Wednesday.  It has been a long race but as we approach the finish line we are thankful for all of the turns and adventures we have had along the way. 

I brought the camera hoping to capture the memory on film.  When I asked the Vice Consul if we could take a picture to remember this day he said sure, but you don't have your camera do you?  To which I replied, of course I do . . . he laughed and said . . . well you're not supposed to - they should have told you that at the security booth.  Thankfully he was a good sport and we all posed to commemorate this monumentous day for our family!

We'll be sure to post the actual Immigrant Visa once we see it with our own eyes . . . what a day that will be!  Thank you to all for your continued support and friendship . . . we can't wait to introduce you to Keyara . . . she's an absolute joy!!

Hi Kreig & Karen,
We're so happy to hear of your good news. You've been on our Seniors S.S. class prayer list for quite some time. Would love to see you all some day.

Dick worked for Northrop Grumman in Sunnyvale and from friends that he stays in touch with, they are hiring mechanical engineers. Dick did electrical engineering. If you should apply there, feel free to use his name as a reference.

And if you ever get to the Austin area, we have plenty of room for you to come visit with us.

Love to all,
