Well be made it!!! We got to the JFK airport with minimal delays. Checked in 13 pieces of luggage, carried on 5 pieces, got seats together and made our connecting flight from Rome to Albania without any problems. God is good!
We met our Bethany contact in Albania who drove us to Elbasan, Albania...it was really raining hard and there was some flooding however got here safely! Praise God!
Got settled into our apartment...a bed for everyone of us...all good except for a few termites eating the kitchen table, but all in all will meet our needs. Went shopping at the open market...really good fresh fruits and veggies.
We met Kiara for the first time on Tuesday...she is beautiful...can't wait to share photos once we are allowed to, after our court hearing!!! Dawn and I went to the orphanage on Tuesday morning and evening...all the kids on Wednesday morning...she's warming up to us...we can tell she is well loved by the nuns since she knows them and isn't quite sure who we are yet. However she is beginning to hug us and starting to show us her great smile. God is Amazing!
