WOW 30 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I can't believe that we have been here with Anaya for 30 days now! Sometimes it seems like she has just been a part of the family for forever, and then other days, I am just brought to tears that I actually have her in my arms! She is such a joy to have around, and we are enjoying her very much!

This is Anaya's little friend Ana, she moved into the apartment across the lawn from us, and we have had a great time getting to know her, and her Mom. They too, are in the process of adoption, but they are stuck in the mess with PGN right now, so please pray for them!! Gretchen has been in Guatemala for 6 months now fostering Ana and her husband Charles comes out about once a month for a visit! They are so very nice, they invited us to go out to dinner with them tonight! So we got to eat at the Monoloco, and get to know them a little better! Thanks God, for friendly neighbors!! This is Easton getting ready for a swim! He actually went into the kiddie pool today, usually he will only go if Ryan or an adult goes with, Dylan did help him at first, but then he was fine to be in there alone. In fact, he prefers it alone, when the other 2 boys get in, they splash too much and he does NOT like to be splashed!! He is a funny little guy!
He is helpful too, always wanting to help "naya" do everything! Here, we are trying to get her to use her little legs! Not that I want her to walk, but she does need to know what to do with them!
Ahh snuggling in bed with the boys! They LOVE to "take care" of her while I tuck the other 2 in bed! She doesn't seem to mind! Love the silly hair from being stuck up all day!

We had another awesome day here, it is supposed to be rainy season, however God has been so kind as to let us have some very sunny, beautiful days!

Ryan called the lab this morning to check on the DNA, and they said they had no record of us!! But, they called back a bit later, and said the DNA had just arrived, and they were going to begin to process it today!! So that takes 4 business days, and we are looking at them shipping it out like Tuesday or Wednesday, they overnight it, so we are praying for PINK by Friday!! So please join us in prayer that this gets done asap!! And, that we will get a date for the following week! We know there are a lot of variables, and God knows how it will all play out, so we are resting in HIM! The lab will call us with a tracking number when it is shipped, so we will know when it gets to the US Embassy, then it is up to them to issue the pink (it is actually an email!) And, get this~I can NOT access that account from here! I have on occasion, but for whatever reason, I have not been able to the last few days! Talk about annoying! Poor Ryan will have to be constantly checking and letting me know! I am so thankful to be at this point, and will keep everyone posted once we hear any more!!

Oh and one more thing, they say there were 3 or 4 earthquakes here from Sat. to Tues. but, we didn't feel a thing! We were in bed all of the times, and apparently sleeping. The one was said to be a 5.3 on the Richter scale! Not sure if I am happy I missed it, or bummed, a little of both I guess!

Thanks for checking in, we love and miss you all!
