That's the message I just got from Donna - who called hysterically from Antigua. THEY GOT PINK - Embassy appointment is scheduled for June 29 (the boys will be 14 months old on that day). Gary is flying down tomorrow to join her and his new sons and will remain until they can bring the boys home (right now that date looks as if it will be Saturday, June 30) I think they are going to try to have the Embassy appointment moved up a day or two, if possible, because the following week (4th of July week) is a very busy one for hotels and flights, and they want to be able to leave that Saturday.

Donna had the boys last night all on her own for the very first time (no nanny, no foster sisters) and she happily reported to me that she did very well - the boys went down at 8:30 and didn't wake up until 4 in the morning - they all got a wonderful night's sleep just in time for the big news that arrived today.

Glory Hallelujah - Praise the Lord - all is good with the world - Thanks again to everyone for the prayers - they worked.

An extremely excited Grandma who is retiring today after 25 years at VCU - what better retirement present could I ask for.
