Day 4 Part 1: Train and hotel

I loved taking the overnight train.  I have only been on one other very short train ride and have always loved trains.  I was so excited!!!  We did not get much sleep but we had fun.

We were picked up at the train station at 6:30am by our facilitator/lawyer and we love her already.  She brought us to our apartment and we LOVE it!  Sooooo much better then our first apartment!!!!

So now we are waiting for our facilitator to come pick us up and then it is a very busy day of a lot of paperwork.  But most importantly…


I am anxious, nervous, and excited all at the same time.  We have been praying all night and morning that God would prepare his heart and mind to meet us, that there would be no fear and that he would know in his soul that we are there to love him.

I will have part 2 of the post after we meet him :)


  1. Waiting anxioulsy for THAT update. Prayers that all continues to go well.

  2. Horray Horray Horray! Can't wait to hear and see how it goes - best wishes!!

  3. That first picture of the two of you is adorable : ) Proof: my two year old walked up to the computer and pointed to your picture on the screen and said "awww, cute". : )

  4. Oh Jamie I love your apartment!! I'm so very glad its sunny inside :D And Yay!! I'm sooo excited you got to meet him already!!!

  5. SO funny to see the apartment--we stayed there too! It must be the typical "Hang-out" for anyone in the region! They rearranged the furniture in the living room since we were there last fall!
    Glad to know you made it safely. Enjoy the car rides. They are quite the adventure! :)
