Our Last Day

Wow....where has the time went? I can't believe that we leave Armenia tomorrow. This will be just a quick post. Today we visited the Armenian Genocide Museum. It was too sad for words. It's unbelievable the horrible acts that humans are capable of. Later we went back to the Embassy to get Rita's visa. F had stepped into the restroom for a minute and they called our name. The guy at the window wanted the document to clarify our Italian citizenship....what??? Aren't we at the US Embassy???? No worries he just got his words mixed-up. Now we are just killing time until this evening when we will start packing. Rita is so excited to go to America. She talked to Natalie on the phone again and Natalie couldn't believe how much better her English was even just since Saturday. I do have some bad news.........Rita is not perfect (oh darn!!) This angel does sprout devil horns from time to time but we still love her like crazy. I am so thankful that the agency back in the US has set us up with an Armenian speaking family for us to contact once we're home. This will be a life saver for not only Rita but us too!!! Well, I'll update again by Thursday or Friday and even with PICTURES!!!!!! Please say lots of prayers for our long journey home. I can't wait to give Andrew, Natalie, Audrey and Paul great big hugs and kisses!!!!!!
