Okay, Chris and I have been trying to post a blog from an internet cafe for about two hours...we are obviously not very savvy. We have some great pics....and some great stories! We will try again tomorrow.

Be praying....we love you all! SWEET GIRL....HERE WE COME!!! We are signing the Power of Attorney tomorrow...and then we get to spend three incredible days with her.

Love,

Chris. Nick Gray in the wee hours of the morning. I just ran across your blog and begin to pray for you guys now. I know a big church here that does a ton in Guatemala. I am actually house sitting for a family who is there as i write this doing medical missions. All to say i know a lot of people who would and could help out any way they can. I also know a lawyer that travels there a lot and speaks spanish. He is great and would probably love to do pro bono work for you. I know i'm coming into this late, but if i can help let me know. love you man, we'll be praying.

I'm praying for you guys and hope you have an awesome visit with "Sweet Girl". I wish I could have gone with you and I wish I was spending some time with Fern. If you see her, hug and kiss her for me and tell her that I love her and want to be with her...

Hey guys! Even though we don't know you two very well yet, we are so thrilled to have an opportunity to be able to do so. We just want you to know we are here for you guys and want to support you however we can. We are excited that you can have a chance to see sweet girl and spend good time with her- we pray that is a blessing! Our prayers and thoughts continue to be with you-we look forward to hearing how everything went. By the way, we were able to give Polly lots of love last night- she's such a furry little snugglebunny! (did I mention furry?) ;)
Love, Amy and Matt
