I was impressed last weekend that in order for the adoption to happen in time for us to be on that plane March 25, one of us would be required to be in Haiti to file the visa paperwork with the US Embassy in advance. So I bought my ticket last Saturday. I will arrive in Port au Prince on the afternoon of March 19.

At this point we have done all we can do, and we have made ourselves available in case God moves. All the pieces are in place and now we’ll watch the Grand Chess Master.
