On A Jet Plane

Well, we pulled it together....emails have been sent, clothes are packed, last minute instructions are sent and the family is on their way!
I think it may actually hit the family that they are going to get their daughter (unfortunately one of the two since the youngest is still in IBESR)when they actually land in Haiti:-) Nothing like 85* heat hitting you in the face when you exit the plane to say "WELCOME TO HAITI!"
I am so excited for them, have run thru all sorts of scenarios with them as to what to expect and have let them free to go. I know the families are always safe, but I always nail bite and fight to sleep when families are gone...they are my responsibility and I have to coordinate their trip to a 3rd (5th) World Country from afar....aarrgghh...no control, control freak is having an issue here....
I will update here how things are going and how the US Consulate reacts to the family actually making it to the 'impossible appointment time'!

You know that this entry and the one below caused my husband to panic. We have been waiting so long for the kids, I think there is a part of him that has quit waiting. Until he read this post.
