Hi everyone - it's me Donna....and Gary and Austin and Logan! Hola!! Thank you mom for doing such an incredible job updating my blog, I may have to retire and turn things over to you!

Wow - where to begin! Remember when I said coming down here solo was similar to jumping off the high dive and the swimming pool? Well, it was all that and more! It was like hitting the high dive with one big gigantic bounce before jumping off!
I probably cried more in those first few days than I have the whole process - very scarey, very emotional, very overwhelming and I definetly thought I bit off more than I could chew!

But - now that I have finally "landed" and gotten my sea legs, I am doing wonderful!

Austin and Logan are even more spectacular now than they have been on any previous visit trips. If I do take a moment to brag a little - they are incredibly smart, very funny, extremely co-ordinated and drop dead gorgeous!!
They also have two of the biggest most loving hearts I have ever seen. They have taken to Gary and I as if we have been caring for them all along. They love us wholeheartedly. We get smiles in the mornings, open arms running to us when they fall, besitas (kisses) galore and giggles, giggles, giggles, all day long!

Thank you all for your love, support and prayers - for those of you still in process, you are in my constant thoughts and prayers. I KNOW you're day will come, too and I pray that it comes even sooner than you had dared to hope.

As for now, we are still scheduled for embassy appointment this coming Friday with Visa pick-up Monday (July 2) at 3:30pm. We're a little concerned about hotel rooms (the city is quite booked with, go figure, the Olympic Committee meeting here beginning June 30th) and a little concerned about flights home, but we again, turn to God and prayers to help us through this last little leg of our journey home.

Signing off from Heaven, a very content and happy Momma whose arms are finally and constantly filled with two precious miracles!
