We are in Guatemala!

We arrived today about 12:30 and found out DOug was missing his suitcase, so it took awhile for us to get to our hotel. Then when we got there they couldnt find out reservation, and we had to wait about 30 minutes while they made calls to find it. BUT, THEN....we got to go to see Mateo! We spent about 2 1/2 hours with him and the kids at the hogar. We bought pizza and pop, and spent the time playing with the kids and Mateo. Doug fell in love with him all over again! He is such a great dad to the girls, but WOW...he is so going to spoil Mateo! He was in heaven! We have an appointment at the CNA in the morning at 9AM and that is when we can offically take custody of Mateo. We will have a better idea of what is going on with us while we are here, meaning any traveling and sight seeing we will do, etc, depending on when they schedule the actual emapthy study. It is where they will watch us with Mateo and see how we interact with each other. My room looks like BOrders Books and Toys R Us had a party in it! Lots of toys, clothes, little superman undies, ..I am so happy I cant even tell you ! DInora has been so wonderful for us and has helped us tremendously!!! THe kids there just melt your heart and you cant help but want to take them all home with you! I am so looking forward to spending the next few weeks with little Mateo!! We love him soooooooooooooo much! I am posting some of my favorite pix from today! Thank you for your prayers!
