Hey everybody!

Today we went Augusta, where Josh is from. It was about a 3 hour drive each way. Josh did well on the car ride - and was just so happy! We are glad that he travels so well!

We met with Josh's birth family - and had lunch. It was fun to see Jessica and John again - and we were so excited to meet Josh's brother Johnathan and his sister Janiyah. The are so cute!

Johnathan and Paige had a great time coloring, and he loved telling her all kinds of things. Janiyah is a doll! She has the cutest smile and you can tell she gives her mom and dad a run for their money!

It was good to see them again - and we just think the world of Jessica and John - they are amazing people!

We have some fun pictures of all of us together, and some pictures from the river-walk in Augusta - but they are on our camera - and of course the cord is back home. These pictures are from Jessica's phone - that she sent to us -

This is of Jessica Janiyah and Josh

This is of Josh's birth family - Josh, Jessica, Johnathan, John, and Janiyah - they are all so cute and we just love them!
Paige took this picture of Josh on our way back to the hotel from Augusta. He was just giggling and laughing! We just love his smile - and we can't wait for each of you to see his smile in person!

We have had some delays with the Interstate Compact Paperwork - but it was all finally submitted to the state of Georgia today - hopefully they review it quickly and send it on to Utah. We are keeping our fingers crossed - and saying lots of prayers - that we will be able to come home on Friday!
