We Leave For Liberia

One Week From Today!

We received an e-mail today with the latest heights and weights of our children and have learned their last name is Davis, which we will now keep as both their middle names.

EMMANUEL DAVIS 2FT 11IN 32 POUNDS
Also check out the spelling of Abigail, good thing I didn't have anything with her name on it, although we are putting an A over her bed and an E over Emmanuel's bed

ABEGAL DAVIS 3FT 9IN 46 POUNDS
Here is more information on what's going on in Liberia in relation to international adoptions:

Applying for and receiving a passport in a country that has little electricity in all offices, that is not computerized, that has graft, that is not nearly as organized as the US means we don't always get what we want, when we want it. Everyone in the AFAA/Liberia staff is working very hard, staff is being increased, staff has been changed to more efficient people - they are doing their best with all that is involved. This is an international adoption in a country torn up by war - the need is there - the American efficiency is not.
