"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows that we know, and holds us responsible to ACT"...Proverbs 24:12

Today we met our daughter and found out what her name meant....'Beautiful' and that is what she is! Wow is all I can say. It's past midnight here- we got her today and it was completely amazing. She is so sweet- definatly shy to us but w/ her friends she was a little chatter box so in time that will change- she is very quiet yet so incediebly trusting w/ us.
She is sleeping like a real princess in our hotel back in Delhi- that somehow got upgraded to a suite :) After a very long lice treatment and major scub down she fell asleep in 10 seconds after we said our prayers. I dont have much time to write but for the families of children in Basundhara....your children are so amazing... they are so happy and very eager for their families to come- I gave the gifts and got pictures too :)
Tomorrow is embassy work. I was really hoping to write more but my wifi is endind and I need sleep! THanks for your prayers everyone!

CONGRATULATIONS! What a glorious day for you all! Oh how the memories flood back over me. There is just nothing like it. To finally see your precious child and know that she is yours and you finally get to hold her and love her and take her home with you. We wish you all the best and that she will come out of her shell and begin to bond with you as quickly as our little guy did. Enjoy every moment!

This is wonderful news. The kids have gone to bed , but we will show them these tomorrow. We went on the boat today, and they had a blast. Caleb had a slight fever today but the childrens Tylenol and a cool bath took care of it.

It is 10:26 am your time.
12:26 AM here, I just came back to see if there were any more posts from you. Not that you need to, you are busy. Good luck at the court. If there's social unrest, take the day off. Through the Internet, we feel we are there, with you.
When my dad used to travel, he would tape record the events that unfolded, for us kids who were little at the time. That was in the days before video and the internet. But somehow as little as we were we knew how important it was to him that we understand what was going on.
See you soon.
