We were terribly worried, but knowing a few things and knowing what she had been through especially the last 10 days before coming home, we knew she needed time to adjust to her surroundings and her body needed time to adjust to a new environment, new water, new food, etc.
She came home on Sunday 1/24. I called Nathan while he was in Florida, because I was looking at the calendar of when we found out about her.
March 22, 2009 we got an informal referral (meaning someone at the orphanage was so excited to tell us there was a baby girl for us)
March 23, 2009: Our agency gave us the formal referral for Charline.
EXACTLY10 months later...
Jan.22: We get a call from the State Dept. informing us Charline has the clearance to leave Haiti and come home.
Jan. 23, 2010: Nathan is reunited with our daughter forever.
God is good.
