We have birth certificates in hand and will be picking up the kids (hopefully) in just a few minutes! I'll stay in Kramatorsk for the weekend as we wait for my POA from Mike to translate (man I'm glad I brought that!) so that we can withdraw the money in the children's government accounts and get it donated to Antoshka (orphanage). Just over $3000 and it will go a LONG way here!
Monday we'll do that then head to Donetsk for passports, then hop the plane to Kiev! Becky Gantenbein (a friend from church who is willing to give up her week, vacation days, and fly around the world for me- WOW!) will be coming over on Monday which means she'll get to me by Tuesday. We'll have the kids' medicals on Tuesday and apply for the Visas. We hope to be on an airplane HOME on Thursday!
The end is near! :)
