we are now a family of 6! We can get the court documents on Feb 29th- leap day. Tomorrow Emma Hope will celebrate her first birthday with a family when she turns five! And Micah Daniel will be 18 months old on the 10th of March. I'm hoping to celebrate that at HOME!
The 10 days weren't even brought up in the court proceeding as our facilitator wasn't in the room and that would be her place to mention. She opted to stay outside because there weren't enough chairs. Lots of questions about our family, home, income, jobs, but all expected. The judge asked me how I feel about the new children and after I answered he stared at me... um... is that odd? Anyway, so I said more... then more... finally that was enough I guess! I told about how they are very sweet, loving, we've enjoyed playing with them, they have changed a lot in the little time since we met them and we are looking forward to seeing the potential that they will have as they learn and grow.
They stuck Mike with all the rest of the questions and he did well with the "why are you in Ukraine" and "why not more biological children" questions.
Mike will leave for Kiev tonight on the 10pm train. He'll arrive around 10 tomorrow morning in Kiev and do his paperwork at the US Embassy. Then he'll spend a night at the Bed and Breakfast in Kiev with our friends we came through with the first time and begin his flights home at 6:50am on Wednesday.
As I type here I think I'm being harassed by an 8 yr old but I have no idea because I can't tell a thing he's saying... Life is good! LOL
