Rawlins, Wy only 4 hours from SLC, Utah

Well, we are resting up in a Comfort Inn in Rawlins, Wy. We are only 4 hours from SLC so we will get up early and arrive early afternoon to get ready for our dinner with "T". I am really excited to see her and meet her. I am ready to move past that anxious moment to the more comfortable times with her of getting to know familes better.

I want to thank everyone for all the prayers and support. I cannot tell you how enjoyable this time together in the car has been. We have not annoyed each other and have truly enjoyed each others company as we always do!! We have enjoyed looking out the windows and seeing The Rocky Mountains. It is really breathtaking and will only get prettier. It is bad when the parents were ready to call it a day after 10 hours in the car and the boys are yelling to keep on going to SLC. =D It is truly amazing to watch your children take in the beauty God has given us. To hear them yell, "Oh, look at that, there is snow on the top of that mountain!" or "Look there are Antelope over there!" You also get the opportunity to see how much school they are taking in. I heard Christian explain volcanoes to us as we saw an extinct volcano in New Mexico. Today we have left Texas, gone through New Mexico, Colorado and are now in Wyoming. How neat is that? It is pretty awesome to watch how flat West Texas can be and to go from that flat open area to a wonderful mountainscape.

Well, keep the prayers up and going!! Pray God's safety for us during the rest of this journey. Pray "T"'s peace of mind and continued guidance from the Lord. Pray that our meeting tomorrow goes well and is as comfortable as it can be.

I will hopefully be updating you on the wonderful time we spent with "T".
