Yesterday was a long, difficult day spent being bounced around between various Liberian government offices and officials....first told one thing and then another. Waiting here. Waiting there.

I'll spare you all the drama, but just know that first thing this morning, I was given the clearance letter for which I've waited a week. According to the official that signed it, it is every thing I will need to pass through all the inspection points at the airport with the boys.

I've got this woman's phone number just in case!

First flight out of here is Wednesday night at 7p (Liberia is 4 hours ahead of EST). Drew is working with the travel agent on my itinerary, but the boys and I should get to Greensboro sometime Thursday evening.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers, emails, comments and posts. They've been a huge encouragement to me. Drew and I may never know what God had in mind with all the delays, waiting, shutdowns and holds......but I'm excited to see how His plan for Amos and Kalee and the rest of our family plays out over the next years.

As my friend Cheryl is probably saying about now, "Go, God!"

SB, YAY!! I have JUST now been able to read your blogs from Liberia. Have not had reliable Internet since you left (LONG story). Can NOT believe all that you have gone through! How have you kept your sanity?? HATED to not welcome you home on Sat, but plan to be at the airport on Thurs. Sending you and the boys our love. Hope you have a good flight home to the USA!!

Wish we could be there to welcome Amos and Kalee to the US and hug you for all your effort. Even with all the delays, it's great to hear you say you know it's all in God's timing.
