This post is long overdue but since my head feels like it is spinning in a billion different directions, this is the 1st chance I have had to sit down and share anything. We did get updated pictures of Leiney Grace. She doesn't look quite as happy as her last pictures. One thought struck me as I looked at these pictures - she has on 2 sweaters and a big coat, and she is inside. Makes me wonder if it is that cold in the orphanage. I hope not. The update states she is currently "healthy" - sure hope that lasts at least until we can get her home. Based on measurements, she wears a size 12 shoe and is 5 inches taller than Ellie. We will soon find out how accurate they really are.
I can't believe we leave in 9 days. Although my head does feel like it is in constant motion due to the random thoughts that continuously bombard my brain, much has and is being accomplished. . .
