We made it home alive & with all of our luggage! It was so good to see the kids & have some good American bbq for dinner :) The kids were even more excited to get their presents from Russia. we got a hand-carved wood chess set for Ben & Russian nesting dolls for the girls. We got home, got the kids to bed, & started tackling unpacking & mount laundry. Andrew crashed, but my body is still on Kras time where it's just about dinner time tomorrow. It's back to the normal routine in the morning with baseball game, birthday party, & errands. No time to rest! We were surprised that our FBI clearance letters were here when we got home. They came in half the time we expected....now if USCIS could get it together & send our renewal. They'll be getting another annoying phonecall from us on Monday! We need these things for court & need to get court docs sent ASAP so we can get our court date. Then it's back to Russia for our little guy to become ours legally & BRING HIM HOME!!! I have a lot to do in the meantime to get ready for him. His room needs to be painted, rearranged, & we need to figure out where everything we need for him is coming from. God is providing for this adoption & know He is going to give us the rest of what we need to complete it. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of it! We are forever grateful. Now back to WAITING........and praying....and preparing for him. I can't wait until he's home!!!
