When I got home from work yesterday, Savvy and I called Amber and Rick but we woke them up because it was about 2 AM over there. Opps! We didnt talk so we let them go back to sleep. I just got off the phone with them this morning to get an update because everyone is calling, sending text messages and emailing asking me how they are doing. Anyway, I called and Rick answered. You could hear Amber and Ayana playing. Rick said they were trying to get their airlime tickets upgraded because the airlines lost the two donation bins. The airlines called them and said they found the bins but when Amber & Rick got to the airport to get the donations to take to the orphanage, they only thing left of the bins were the two lids! Amber & Rick are very upset about the whole ordeal especially since there were some important donations that the orphanage really needed. They visited the orphanage again today and Amber said that the kids there still have chicken pox. They have had an outbreak of them for a while now but they are still surprised that chicken pox is still a problem. Another reason the donations were needed!
Ayana still has a cold and a runny nose and she now has an ear infection. Amber said that she is otherwise a very happy baby. They put her on the phone and she was cooing and making other noises. It was precious!
They both said they are ready to come home. They have Ayana'a visa, medical records and all other needed documentation. They are just waiting to get on a plane. They will stay one more night and then start heading back Thursday afternoon and be back home on Friday night. When Savannah gets home from school, Amber said to call them even though we will wake them up so I will update the blog again tonight after we talk to them. That's all for now!
