TA and Travel Dates!

It has been nearly a month since I posted, and things have been very busy here for us.

Both Isabelle and Hallie are healing well, and their casts are off. Hallie already had her two week follow-up appointment, and the doctors said that she looks great. She doesn't need any therapy (YAY!!), and is back to normal now. Isabelle got her cast of yesterday. She is stiff and sore, but we expect that to improve quickly now. 
 No more casts!!!

Several people even sent gifts to help us with the cost of the girls' medical bills, and that was a huge answer to prayer. Thank you very much!

Now, the news about Jonathan -- we got our travel approval from China, and we will leave on June 10th!!  We are very excited and very nervous at the same time. We will meet him on June 13th, and complete his adoption on June 14th.

We also have very good news about our fund-raising. Our friends' Jogging for Jonathan fundraiser raised just about $2000, and several other donations have come in as well. Some other friends of ours recently contacted us and told us that they will be making a very large donation around the beginning of June. Thanks to these gifts, we are only $5000 short of the funds that we need now! We can't believe it! Just a few weeks ago, we still needed $19,000, and it all seemed impossible. Now we are only $5000 away. Please pray that God will provide the rest of the money that we need, and that He will help us be ready to fly to China four weeks from today. There is a lot that still needs to happen in that time!
