We Got Our Court Date!!

We are completely in shock, but we just found out we got our court date already!! It’s April 15th and it can’t come soon enough!! Please say some prayers as we have to redo our police clearances and they take a minimum of two weeks. I have called the Virginia State Police and am working with a lady who seems to think we can have it back in time.

We should get official travel dates tomorrow!! I can’t believe it. We are again over the moon at seeing our angel again so quickly.

As to our surprise shower, my sister left me this comment on our last post:

"shower rsvp's are good, especially you out of towners!!!....RAE YOU HAVE NO IDEA!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!"

Uhhhh, what in the world does she have planned? As Becky mentioned to me, it’s starting to sound like a Bachelorette Party!! With her...somehow I wouldn’t be surprised!! I’ll keep you posted if I get any hints!

I'm so extremely excited for you and Troy. You are oh so deserving of this, and I cannot wait to read about your journey to bring your little one home. I'll keep you in our prayers for the police report to be completed timely and that you are able to go back to Russia for your scheduled court hearing. I will also pray your wait period is waived and you can come home sooner! Looking forward to seeing pictures and hearing about your return to Russia!! We'd love to hear more about your time in Iz and visits with your cutie pie when you have time!!
