Preparation for our trip continues. We just got word that our final document called "Notice of Coming" has arrived. We are officially ready to bring Anya home to our family. The itinerary is being finalized for our travel as well as the adoption part of our trip. We are collecting some things to bring to the orphanages and Philip Hayden when we visit. Thanks for the help from friends and suppliers in helping us purchase and collect these much needed items. Scott keeps looking at the growing pile of items and wonders how we will get it all there. Where there is a will there is a way!! My Mom (Nana) is joining us for the last two and a half weeks so we'll pack a suitcase for her to bring directly to Philip Hayden. We are very excited that she will be traveling with us...especially once we receive Anya as an extra body and pair of hands will be helpful with her transition. It will be amazing for her to be there to experience the miracle of receiving a child/grand-daughter into our family.
