Welcome Alexis Victoria Gartner

We successfully completed our exit visa appointment. There is a new Gartner child on the block now;-). She is anxious to go home and see her brothers and sisters. Patrick...we're coming soon!!! Thanks for those candles you've been burning and to all our friends and family for their prayers and help. I know Kisty is probably ready to jump over-board by now....LOL....however, just hang on for a little longer and we will be home. I do have just one piece of news about the issuance of the paper visa....the Embassy computers are down and so we may be delayed by one day according to the official spokesperson. So, hang on one extra day and pray they do indeed issue them as promised the following day. Many blessings....and many thanks to all!!!! Trisha, Duane, and Alexis Gartner
P.S...Thanks to Charlotte for keeping the kids informed!!!!

    Talked to Kisty and the kids, they were on the way home from play practice. Then I talked to lil Trish n Casey. Lil Trish seemed concerned about the delayed paperwork.

  3. Words can not express how happy I am for you all. Lexi will love coming home! I'll have to tell my sister to tell them to hurry up over at the embassy--LOL. She works at the Moscow Embassy btw. Not in the visa dept. though. Write when you can and have a safe trip back.
