If you haven’t heard already WE ARE COMING HOME!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your prayers regarding our Visa! They were answered today! Luke, Mace, & I got up at 5:45 this morning and were sitting outside of the US Embassy at 6:45 (Bear in mind that the Embassy does not open until 7:30). We were the second people in line, as their was another adopting father with his 2 year old son in front of us, who had been there since 6am!! We were able to go inside around 7:30, but were not seen until about 9:30. Thankfully everything went smooth, Mace slept (Thank you Jesus!), all of our paperwork was in order and we were told to come back at 2:30 that afternoon for our Visa interview.
After a quick bite to eat and a quick nap we headed back to the Embassy at 2pm. This time Mace was very rested and ready to talk and play! Thankfully he was happy, but he was LOUD! Talking and laughing 🙂 We were called in for our interview around 4:30pm and after a few generic questions regarding our jobs and why we wanted to adopt from Uganda, we signed the papers and she told us to come back at noon on Friday to pick up our Visa!
We are so excited to be heading home soon, although we will miss Uganda and all of the amazing friends we have made here at Emmaus!
Our flight is currently scheduled to leave Uganda at 11:30pm on Saturday night and will arrive in Tampa at 4:45pm on Sunday afternoon. I will forward details of the flight on Friday, and we will keep you guys updated of any delays via Facebook. If you can make it to the airport we would love to see all of you! We can’t wait to introduce you to our sweet baby boy! He is quite the character!
Love you guys! Thank you for all of your love, prayers, and support during this journey! It is surreal to think that in 3 days we will be flying home with our baby!!!
Luke, April, & Mace
