Drum Roll, Please.....

                                               RYLEA IS COMING HOME!!!!
The Giving and Receiving Ceremony, which is where she officially becomes ours, will be on January 5th.  John will leave on or about the 1st.  We have been told that he must be in country by the 3rd. They will return home on the 14th or 15th!!  We are bummed that she will not be home for Christmas as previously mentioned, but are THRILLED that she is coming home sooner than we expected!!  We didn't expect our I-600 approval until after the first of the year! Thankfully there are 2 other families traveling at the same time to her orphanage.  So, John will not be alone.  At last our Rylea Faith is coming home forever!!!  We are hoping to get new pictures before we travel, too!!!  God is GOOD!  Thanks for all the prayers, comments and emails of good wishes!
Love,
John, Carla, Marissa, Johnathan,
Emilea, Jackson, Ethan, Kaylea, Owen,
Rylea & Rubea
