getting ready to see Rachel

hello everyone,
well, 4 more days till we get to meet Rachel. needless to say we are thrilled!!! I will try & post at night all the pictures from the day.. We are staying at the Westin in Guatemala City. Well, I called Verizon Wireless & they told mr that it would be $2.50 a minute to call the states, so neeless to say We wont be calling home, although its much cheaper for you guys to call me. I called Guatemala & was on the phone for about 5 minutes & it was only about 4 dollars. We would love to hear from you guys, I think they are on central time, not positive though. If you dont have a long distance carrier like me you would dial 1016868 then 011 502 2333 3000.
We welcome all the phione calls..

talk to you all soon

It's a match!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We got an email from carol on nov 5th to let us know that there was a positive DNA match with rachel & her birthmother... Now we can move on to getting our pre approval from the US embassy in Guatemala, after that we move to our last step called PGN where all of our paperwork is scrutinized, most people get kicked out for one stupid reason or another.

Me, Sam & my mom will be going to visit Rachel on dec 4th we will be there for 5 days!!
We can wait to hold her in our arms & we will certainly have TONS!!!! of pictures when we get home
