Something Is Missing

Sometimes I wonder if this thing has a mind of its own. The pictures never seem to upload in the right order no matter what. Once I think I have it all figured out it mixes the pictures all up. Oh well. Anyway...

Chris had his Embassy Appt yesterday (Monday) afternoon and all went well with that. All he had to do was sign some forms there and he was done. Now he is on a plane heading home to our girls - well two of them anyway. Karissa is off at college :)

Here we are with Milana on Saturday. This was Chris's last visit with Milana until I come home with her. She is missing him already and so am I. It just isn't the same without him. I'm really wishing we brought the girls on this trip, but I guess they would have left with him too so it'd just be me and Milana. This was a picture of Peyton, Riley, Chris, and I the day we left - 3 weeks ago today! It seems like it was so much longer. (Can you tell I am missing my girls)!! I can't wait to go home and hug them tight! I might not let go!!!
This little girl is so ready to get home to her sisters, her Dad, grandparents, great grandparents, her aunts, uncles, friends, etc. I can't wait!!

Here are my 3rd graders. Wow! Time sure does fly by. I can't believe how big they have gotten in the three weeks since I have been gone! I love you girls!!! (For the record this picture was the right way when I uploaded it. I would attempt to fix it, but it takes far too long for pictures to upload here and so really it just isn't worth it). Just stand on your head when you are ready to look at it :)

Here is Daddy and his little - well not so little girls. I bet they can't wait to pick him up from the airport later today.

I would have happily added a picture of Karissa, but I asked her to send me some weeks ago and still haven't gotten any. I attempted to swipe some from her pictures on facebook, but...well it just didn't work out so well. I am missing her too! I can't wait for her to come home and visit us once we are all home!
Hoping to find out what the plan is for when the 10 days are up. I'm getting anxious and would like to know when we are doing the paperwork, busting Milana out of the orphanage, etc.


  1. sorry that Chris had to head back to the states. I bet your girls are just as anxious for you all to be back home again and to have a round of tea with their little sister.


  3. So exciting.Soon you will have your other beautiful daughter :)

  4. I'm sure it is hard (I will soon know how you are feeling probably) but you are almost there! I can understand about that college-age kid too! Independent yet needy... :)
    Praying for you and Milana!!! Love the pics of your family!

  5. How many more days before the 10day wait is up? I can't believe it's been 3 weeks already! I hope time is flying for you over there like it seems to be here. I can't wait to see you getting off the plane with that little girl. She looks SO much like a Wojcik it's not even funny!!!

    Hang in there Jen! I admire your perseverance!
