The news you have all been waiting for!

I have lots to tell you, but I am incredibly tired. We didn't sleep on the train much. We amazingly got to meet the kids today and I will tell you the basic facts now and tell you lots more tomorrow when my brain isn't in sleepy mode!!

The children are (drumroll please...) And I will just call them by their first intial until we tell the orphanage director our answer (tomorrow) and when we decide on names.

M - 8 y/o boy - he is very quiet, small.
V - 7 y/o girl - she seemed quiet at first, but I think she is going to be the "boss." (She looks a lot like my great niece Olivia).
I - 5 y/o boy - this is going to be the rowdy one of the bunch.
K - 3 y/0 girl - my sweetie - little pigtails - she cried for mama when we left. (Okay I am crying now too.)

Yup, quadruplets!!

Well, I really have to go - I am falling asleep here at the computer - I could write pages.... 'til tomorrow....
