It has been a long but awesome day. I can already start to feel my stress level decreasing :) We arrive in Miami at 10:30am. By the time we got our luggage & rented a car it was 12:00pm. We arrived at His House Children's Home at around 12:30. We did a little bit of paperwork which had not only been faxed to ORR (Office Of Refugee Resettlement) but we had also filled out & brought ourselves. This made things go very quickly. While they reviewed our paperwork we went to visit Vania.She was quite at first, but again no tears. In about half an hour she was back to her feisty little self. She looks good, is eating well No diarrhea. She does have large blister on her right hand which we don't know what happened but it is healing.And her left earring hole looks like it may have been infected recently but that is also healing.Our paperwork was done in a couple hours & we are now her "sponsors". this means we have legal custody of her until our adoption is finalized in the State Of Ohio. YEAH!!!!!!!!!! We hung out a little longer at the Children's home to see all the parents coming in before we left. Totally awesome to see the children re-united to their forever families.They are all doing SUPER. And also awesome to see our fearless Team Hope! We cannot thank them enough for being our hereos & getting these kids home. We are forever grateful!Thank you for all your prayers & support. Please know that God has used all of you to play a part in bringing them home. That's how he operates. He uses the Body of Christ. The family business.
