"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

Yes, we are here!

We made it.... it was a long day of traveling, three flights and lots of achy muscles from sitting on the planes, but we are here. We explored some yesterday and had some dinner, and slept. Sweet lovely sleep in a bed. :) We had our appointment this morning and it went well. Yes, we have a referral and will pick it up tomorrow and meet her on Friday. I will share more details as I can, but we appreciate all your prayers and support. It has been quite a ride for this adoption, and we pray things smooth out from here.
