Last night in Kunming

Hey everybody!

We are packing up right now and getting ready for the last leg of our journey. It is kind of bittersweet leaving Kunming. This place is Kiera's history and her birthplace. Seeing where she was found and the orphanage where she spent her first eight months (we saw it today) just makes me love her more and makes me more sure than ever how right this decision was. Will and I will spend our lives making up for every sad thing this little girl has had to live through.

But tomorrow we leave for Guangzhou for our appointment at the American consulate (which is Thursday. We will apply for Kiera's visa to come to America (we got her passport today). This will bring her one step closer to becoming an American girl. Yee-haw!

We don't expect to have any problems connecting to the internet in Guangzhou, but if you don't hear from us, just know that we can't get online, but we will as soon as possible - so keep watching for news. We will not be posting anymore until we get to Guangzhou, which is early Tuesday morning for you guys at home. We'll be back online as soon as we can.

Peace ! Kathy, Will and Kiera

Glad to hear you got her passport. Did you get the copy of the note? We will continue to pray that everything goes well with gettting the Visa. Is that the last thing you have to do before bringing her home or is there more? Praying for a safe flight! Love, the Muellers

What an exciting beautiful story this is. She is beautiful. Can't wait to meet her in person. We will keep all of you in our prayers.

God Bless,

Just wanted you to know we were thinking of you guys as we turn in for the night. We'll check in the morning to see if you have arrived (and had nothing else to do but post, right?). In our prayers, the Muellers
