Home tomorrow!

I'm using Matt's computer, so sorry...no pictures. Today was a relaxing day. We just hung out at the pool and then I went to the U.S. Embassy with our facilitator to pick up Miranda's visa. There is a big huge envelope that is sealed that we are NOT SUPPOSED TO OPEN!!! We have to carry it with us and give it to the person at customs. Hopefully, immigration will go smoothly in Houston.

Tonight, we went to dinner with our facilitator and attorney at a nice steak restaurant close to the hotel. I was a bit worried about Miranda being off schedule, but she did well and seems to have gone to sleep (for now).

Looking forward to seeing everyone!! Please call us once we are home. We'd love visitors, though probably not a lot at once. We don't want to overwhelm Miranda too much. And please don't be offended if we don't let a lot of people hold Miranda for a while. We want to do whatever we can to help her adjust to a new environment as well as bond with us. This means that we probably won't let anyone besides close family hold her and that Matt and/or I will be doing most of her feeding, bathing, etc for the first few weeks home.
See you all soon!!
