The annual Santa picture is done. Caelia LOVES Santa - always has. Michael is of the opinion that he is too old for Santa photos. He has been informed that until he is 13 he will be visiting Santa. This is our last year of Michael, Caelia and Santa. Next year, we hope to have Santa, Michael, Caelia, Lena and Lera. After that, in the interest to our son's dignity, we'll just have the girls in the pictures.

Our flight is booked for January 27th - arriving in Kyiv on the 28th with our appointment sometime on January 29th. We were going to stop over in Paris, but this way is quicker and Randy won't have to miss the extra day of work. He is trying to save some vacation days to spend with the girls when we get them home.

I am honored and humbled by your lovely adoption story. I pray for you and the kids, that they are home quickly and safely. What a blessing, I pray that my husband will one day open his heart to a special needs adoption, but in the meantime I have made a small donation to help on your journey. God bless you all from the same land of cold (I am in St Cloud). Godspeed your lovely children to your hearth and home.

Thank you so much for your kind words and your generosity. We are very proud of our children and are eagerly looking forward to adding Lera and Lena to our family.

Meredith, your turn will come soon enough, perhaps you'll be arriving as we are bringing ours home! At any rate, your wait is warmer! (I could do without the snakes though)

Funny, how slow the waiting goes and how once you get your appt. the clock goes into overdrive...I'm sure that no electricity is also making time drag for you. Stay warm.
