About Me

My photo
My husband and I, the Dynamic Duo, have been married since 2003. We've weathered the storm of chronic disease (diagnosis 2006), infertility (diagnosis 2007), turning 30 (2006/2007 respectively) a first adoption (2009) of a tender hearted, compassionate Ukrainian BIG boy (born 2006), who has told us he'd like a baby sister, baby brother, big brother, and REALLY big sister. We recently completed our second Ukrainian adoption journey, which brought us a daughter (born 2005). We'll see what else God brings our way!

On the Road again!

Just to update you - We had court on Wednesday and it was a breeze.  I even made the judge chuckle when I told him that Eli wanted to know if she would play Batman.  We have a sneaking suspicion that if we had asked for the 10 days to be waived he would have.  But because Dave really needed to get home (he's out of his medicines) and my mom wouldn't have been able to get here to help (she's in CO visiting my brother and his family) we decided to rescind our request.  So, as of Wednesday we are a family of 4!  I'll come back around July 10th ish and take her out of the orphanage on the 11th.  Then the paper chasing begins!

We hopped on the overnight train and arrived in Kiev this morning.  We ate a breakfast at McD's and then headed to the embassy.  We signed the papers and then were off to the airport, where we've been ever since.  I think we got here around 11am.  There's a great Italian restaurant here with WIFI and charging stations, which was super nice.  We are exhausted and really, really want to get some sleep and take showers!  But all in due time!  Pictures when we get home!
