FINALLY! We received our referral from CRAN two days ago. Yesterday, we had our conference call with Raul to go over some procedural issues. We can now apply for our travel visas. Although we don’t have a confirmed date for our “presentation day, ” we do know that CRAN is still planning on the end of July. So now we just have to wait for that confirmation to book our plane tickets.
In the mean time, we bought a Toyota Sienna. Yep, that’s right, I am driving a minivan around (which I’m in love with, by the way) with no children in tow–kind of funny, actually. I keep thinking I should load the booster seats so that it at least looks like I have kids. Adam and I are also looking for a house so that I can spend the next few weeks getting it ready for the children. Although we would rather be in Colombia right now, we are grateful that we have the extra time to properly prepare for their homecoming.
