I'm here! I'm ok!

This is a message to my son, Charlie. I can recieve e-mails, but not send them on Outlook. I hope you got the message I sent through Comcast.net. I have a very low signal in the apartment. I am going to try to Instant message you at 7pm tonight (Tuesday) your time.
I have no phone ability to call you. But the e-mail I hope that you got has the phone number here. Call me from the house phone if you need me.
I'm fine. Not getting the two girls I had hoped to get, but there are others. Political problems with the orphanage. Will explain when I get home. Saw one little girl tonight and said yes! Will go see others tomorrow morning.
I had trouble with the flights here - ended up going to Berlin from Frankfurt and then here. Very tired as I was on planes or in airports from Sunday morning to Monday night. With no sleep. Couldn't sleep tooo excited. Slept 9 hours when I got here.
Nice apartment, Very nice people helping me. The city is beautiful, and we are so lucky to have all we have and most of us take it for granted. I hope I never do again.
This might be the only way I can communicate with you so I hope you remember to check it! give all the kids a hug for me. Please call Grandma and Grandpa and tell them how to access this as it might be the only way I can communicate.
I love you! Mom

Praying everything works out and you get matched to girls that were meant to be yours. All this has ups and downs so don't worry about it, it will ALL work out. I'm glad Al Gore invented the Internet so you can at least communicate to us this way : )

I know you are sad about not getting the two girls you thought you were adopting, I know that can be terribly difficult after already giving your heart to them.

I am praying everything works out for you.

Bless your heart. I know God has all this under control. Please continue to follow Him.

Oh Linda,
I'm sorry you've had more difficulties. I am so glad you got to meet another girl so soon. That yes sounded very positive. Praying for God's most excellent plan for you and yours.

Linda, thinking of you and praying for you constantly...sounds like you had a lot of extra time with Jesus during your flight over!

Praying comfort for you, grace in the midst of unexpected change and confident faith in Jesus and His journey for you.

Linda I'm with you, my heart is riding this roller coaster with yours! I believe God knows all and will guide you to the children who will be yours. It's all so amazing when we look back and see how it turns out.
