Internet Trouble / Sorry for No Updates

Sorry we haven't put many new posts or pictures on the blog since Saturday. We are doing well and everything is fine. We are just having a lot of internet problems (if you saw the power lines around here you would know why). Every time we get some pictures downloaded and write something to post it kicks us out for some reason?? We have been really busy and getting things done. We got Ema's passport today and went for her medical exam this afternoon (Monday). 2 more steps down before we can come home. Now we have to go for our visa interview with the US Embassy to get Ema's visa and then we are free to leave. Hopefully we can get that done this week and come home by Thursday or Friday. We do have tons of pictures and we would love to put them on the blog so everyone can see them. We are going to try and go to the local coffee shop we found and see if it will work there tomorrow. It's really good and reminds us of Starbucks. You know you've been in Hanoi, Vietnam too long when you start recognizing people as you walk down these busy streets and the people at the coffee shop know where you want to sit every time you go there!!

Emily, Kirk and Ema-
I talked to your Mom and she gave me this website to see Ema and get al the details of your wonderful adventure. I is awesome to see all of you and Sam has loved keeping up-to-date on Ema. Sounds like you guys have your hands full - but then again we all do when we have a new baby, whether the baby is a newborn or 17 months old. On some level-we have all been there. Sam is old enough now that you can make him babysit-he is so exicted about Christmas this year. You guys take care and come home safely-we love you very much.
