Two days and we leave – how did this happen? I thought we would never get to this point and now I’m trying to figure out how we got here!! I think we are almost all set. Our Visas are coming in today – talk about last minute. I’ve already had enough panic attacks over them arriving at all that I’m all panicked out, which is probably a good thing. We have our blood work results, lots of original documents in hand and our chest xrays films are now complete and ready to be packed.
Have I mentioned I haven’t packed yet? Oh yeah – we’re a little behind. Tonight my wonderful sister-in-law, Amber, is coming over to help make sure my head is on straight and she is going to do some things around the house to help me out. Thank you, thank you! Tomorrow, my sisters and my mom are carting me all over town to pick up the last minute things and help me pack. I just know my older sister, Cathy, can cram everything we own into one suitcase – she’s good at things like that!
Lastly, I need to make a few shout outs:
Congratulations to Carey & Norman on the completion of their Russian Fairy Tale
Hip Hip Hooray to Carrie and Michael who finally received their court date!
Becky & Keith are counting down to tomorrow for some travel dates – you deserve them!
Janine has a referral!! She leaves March 11th!
Matt & Patti are counting down their 10 days in Astrakhan for their son!
Lots of others are in between trips or on the edge of referrals. What an exciting time in Russian adoptions right now!!
