Update on the Kids

Tatiana emailed us and let us know that they have not cut Mollie's hair like we asked them not to! Woo Hoo! Barretts and headbands here we come! She said Jones is waiting for us. She has visited a couple times. She bought some fruit for the kids from us. He was very happy and said he likes to look at our pics. We had also emailed additional pics that Tatiana took to the orphanage to show him. She said that he told her he was upset when they took away the clothes we had given him but they explained to him that it was too hot for those clothes. Tatiana told him that we would bring him new clothes. It sounds like he is getting excited! Just like us! We have been praying since the day we found out about them, throughout the trip, and since we have been home that the children would dream of us so they could remember and be anticipation our reunion! I love when Tatiana visits the kids and tells us how they are.

It is good that you are hearing news back on Jones. Since he is an older child he is knows that this is going to be for real. I think honestly, you spending 3 weeks in Russia is a good thing. It will give him time to get use to you guys while still remaining in his country where he is use to the food and the sites and smells. I will be praying for you all. Please keep us posted ok!
