I post this picture just to show that Malaena-Sloan is cute even when things don't go her way. Things didn't go my way this week, and I didn't get "the" phone call! BooHoo! When we decided to adopt, we knew the wait would be difficult, BUT neither Donnie or I had a clue! We awake with it on our minds and lay our heads on our pillows with Malaena-Sloan being our last thought. We know that God's perfect timing will bring our daughter home. When we got the call about Malaena on October 4th, we speculated that we would bring her home in March or April. Well, we are UNSURE when she will come home, but when she does, it will be perfect. Next week is a HUGE celebration week in Guatemala as they honor Christ's resurrection with a week long of festivities. We have been told that the offices will be shut Wednesday through Friday. SO, this is where we stand. We are VERY close to getting the call that we are OUT of PGN. When we do get the call, it will be 4-6 weeks before we get our appointment at the U.S. Embassy. We will be travelling very soon to bring our baby girl home, so we can spoil her rotten!
P.S. Don't think for a MINUTE, Malaena-Slaon was mad very long. We had been taking pictures for 10 minutes or so, and she decided she was hungry in a split-second! Mama had the bottle ready!
