The BIG appointment!

Today was our visa appointment. We got up really early after a good nights sleep and headed to Port-au-Prince. Just to let you know, not very many people speak English here, so most of the time you are at the mercy of whoever. We just make sure we are where we are supposed to be at what time. We got to the office and he couldn't find our paperwork, so we got to the US Embassy late, but it all worked out okay. We were out of there in alittle over an hour. We just need to ger her medical report to them, so they can print the visa. Once again trusting God and others. It is out of my hands. Okay so talk about uncomfortable. Here I am in a crowded room, the only white person, well beside Billy and Sierra with this black child. All their children were in fancy clothes(good thing we dressed up) and very well behaved. Emmi was struggling. We had lots of snacks and anything else to distract her. I felt like I was being watched and judged every moment. We survived. We got back after 6 hours of travel. It was great to see more of Haiti. It helps us to have a vision to share with Emmi and know more of her heritage.
We spent the rest of the day playing, hugging, kissing and just learning about each other. Sierra and Emmi had some great playtime together. I can tell she is wondering about us, but really is open to us, especially me. She likes me in sight most of the time. I am learning Kreyol fast so I can communicate some boundaries and love. Lots of learning for all of us. All the kids love Sierra, the toddlers swarm her when she walks in the room. Last night all three of us were feeding the babies dinner, it was great! I did scare one.
It is the rainy season so we have had thunderstorms the last two afternoons and evening. It poured down rain! So all the kids had to stay inside. Sierra is wanting some outside time with the kids, she has heard about it so much.
We are missing our boys and are anxious to come home and get adjusted at there. Please pray the lab/medical report is done tomorrow so we can get her visa and be home by saturday. Emmi is ready to come home and I'm not leaving without her.
