Referral in Hand!

After a successful DAP appointment yesterday, we were allowed to pick up our referral today. Our driver told us to be ready around 2pm so we decided to go get some lunch before he arrived. Our apartment is close to a large shopping complex complete with restaurants and street shops/vendors. We decided to go to McDonalds for lunch today. It was the first time that our American toddler has eaten there and it happened to be in a foreign country: ) How's that for irony?

We walked around a little bit after lunch while waiting to be picked up. The picture below is a shot I took while we were walking around the square (the shopping/restaurant area).

Traffic here is REALLY bad and it seems there are no laws governing how people drive so it makes for quite an interesting ride each time we get in the car: ) I don't know if you can see the lines of traffic, but around here it is inescapable!

We arrived at the DAP and waited for a while until the DAP worker came in and gave us our much-anticipated referral so that we would have permission to visit our Libby girl on Monday!! YAY!! We are so excited to meet her, hold her and love on her! I'm not looking forward to the 15 hour overnight train ride, but know it's worth it as it is taking us to our baby girl!

I will try to post before we leave tomorrow to head to our region. Please be praying for us as we prepare our hearts to meet our Elizabeth Joy and pray that her heart will be open to receive us as her parents and in turn bond with us in a way only God can orchestrate!
