Pls Keep Praying...and Tomorrow--Photos of the Kids!

From Mrs. Beaver:

Thanks to those of you who have been praying that we will be able to get visas for our six Russian adoptees to enter Russia next week (see previous post). Yesterday was the initial promised goal for getting those, but what we learned instead from the visa service company that we've hired to help us is that officials have at least agreed to look at our application. Our contact hopes this is an encouraging sign. Please continue to pray that we will be able to take all nine of our children to Moscow to help us bring home the three new kiddos.

On that note--the 10-day wait is OVER. Wooooohoooooo!!!!! The children are fully ours (although still a few hoops to jump through). We can now post pictures of them!!!!!!!

That said, Mr. Beaver and I must separate tomorrow to meet the needs of our various children who are currently on two different continents. He leaves at 4 am tomorrow to begin the long trek to Moscow, while I will leave around 8 am to fly with Joe, Lissie and Natasha to Chicago for them to compete in the second annual National Bible Bee.

In addition to inundating our blog with pictures of our three very beauuuuuuutifuuuuuuul new children tomorrow, I hope to flesh out the schedule for the next couple of weeks from various airports. Tonight the two of us are too tired and desperate for sleep to even post pictures. I've promised myself I can do that in the morning once I'm fully packed. So for now--good night and God bless you!

We thank and praise our glorious God for the grace to make it through the craziness of today.

Praise the Lord for His goodness to those who trust and serve Him! May He continue to shower His blessings on you and your newly enlarged family :-)

I can't wait for pictures! :-D

I'll be in prayer for all the Bible Bee contestants and for you, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, as you have such a crazy schedule these next few weeks!
