Tonight, We Celebrate!

Remember in that whole "Breakdown" post how I may have mentioned I was desperate for good news? Guess what we got only hours after I wrote those words?

Good news!

God has a funny sense of humor.

We are officially Mtoto's parents. Now we just have to convince USCIS to let him come home. We still have some paperwork to pull together before we request our embassy appointment. Please pray with us that these documents will be gathered quickly, as we will have a considerable wait from requesting an appointment to actually receiving one, and as I mentioned before, I am currently ready to hop on a plane! Also, I would really like to be home with Mtoto in time for Tommy's birthday. We are cutting that one rather close- as more likely we won't be done with this process until the end of April/beginning of May, and Tommy was born on tax day.

We were planning on celebrating tonight anyway. Somewhere along the line my mom got the idea to have family Valentine's day: she would set a fancy table, get a big box of See's candy for dessert, and...order pizza. On Friday we got a certificate for a box of See's in the mail (thanks Mom!), and went and picked our pound. On the way home from work tonight Jeff will pick up a pizza, and we will eat our meal on fancy plates, because what could be classier than Papa John's on china?

On the day that our culture sets aside to celebrate love, we will be thanking God for his love for us, that he has made us a family with two sons!
