Leaving Kiev!

We are on the 10:25 pm train to Kharkov tonight. This is a city of 1.4 million people. I believe our friend Alex from Knoxville is from Kharkov. It will feel good to switch from tourist mode to what our focus truly is. We cannot wait to see these young boys. The bureaucracy here is significant and even our simple visit requires many stamps and approvals before we can see the children. Pray that all goes smoothly.


PS We may be off-line for some time!

It looks like we are going to be in a small village 15km outside of kharkov, same inspector which is good, we will be offline for some time. So far things look good!

We are thinking of you and have a good feeling about this adoption. We hope all will be well.

Ahhhhh...the difference between boys and girls!!! It makes for such a well-rounded house!
I'm praying for you and your new children!
Thanks for the updates!

I hope, your trip will proceed under the plan, and you can take away the boys. You normally went in the Ukrainian train? :)

Steve and Melissa,
You are in my prayers. Hope your meeting with the boys goes/went well. Girls are fun. Boys will pull at your heart strings. They may be rough and tough, but they are teddy bears underneath it all...maybe hyper ones, but teddy bears, nonetheless!
Love to you!

Just thinking of you and praying for you. Hope things are going well!

We hope all is going well and that you've had some good meetings with the boys.

We're praying for you and your family!
