Savina Grace LaBatt

Savina now is officially ours according to Peru!  We have been here two weeks, although it feels much longer to all of us.  The down side is that we still have three weeks until we can come home.  We are trying to enjoy ourselves as much as we can, but our little one isn't really much for site-seeing yet.(understandably)  Yesterday we spent a good long while at the notary to get a power of attorney for our pastor friend to go to the jungle to retrieve Savina's original birth certificate. It was quite an ordeal... I will leave it at that!  Monday is the legal "day of silence" on the adoption, during which nothing is allowed to happen, so he will travel after that. 
Today will be a lazy day at home.  Maybe I will get the chance to translate some more Disney channel for Anna and Emily.  Let's just say that if you haven't seen High School Musical in Spanish, you really haven't lived.  :)

    Congrats on it being official in Peru!! I personally, would like to hear HS musical in Spanish! lol I have wondered how it will be for us while in Peru. I can imagine how it would be hard when you would really love to experience so much of the culture and sight see-but also know that your child is adjusting etc. Praying that time passes quickly and you guys enjoy the remainder of your time in Peru!

    I love Savina's new name - congratulations!
    I know you are anxious to get home, but be sure to treasure this special time you have as a family there in Peru. Once you get home, it is an overwhelming process of adjustment and life here in a much faster pace. You will look back on this as an incubation period, and you will appreciate it in many ways. God's timing and plans are truly perfect!
    We love you and miss you all.
