Holding

I love old brick houses! The temperature only dropped a couple of degrees for each floor last night--the radiators are safe! :) :) And the temperature isn't supposed to get below freezing for the next couple of days. Of course, the power is supposed to be turned back on today. I'm still fuming over some communication issues with the electric company that have caused this delay. Hopefully this whole mess will be over soon, and we are VERY thankful that this didn't happen after we had already moved in. Going without power and without heat for a few days would not have been pleasant.

Yesterday Mark and I took the rest of our dossier to be apostilled. I think I forgot to tell you that we already had half of it done. :) Unfortunately, there was a problem with my employment letter. I'm trying to get that corrected today, as our facilitator really needs to submit our dossier soon. There is a chance that one or both of the girls will get transferred to another orphanage if we do not get over there quickly. While they might still be available for adoption, it will complicate things greatly if they are moved. Not to mention that the orphanage they are in right now is wonderful, with a very caring staff, and that might not be true for the next one.

Please pray for my employment letter and that we will be able to get to the girls soon!

Leslie, I deleted your comment so your email address wouldn't be on there for the world to see. :)

Is there any way you can contact the orphanage to see if they can hold the girls? We did that with Keith and they kept him until we arrived. Just a thought! :o)

We'll be praying for a speedy resolution to your employment letter problem...and for the electricity issue. Glad to hear the radiators made it through unscathed! :)

With Georgiy I believe they let the orphanage director know we were coming and they kept him for us until we got there. It might be worth asking the facilitator? Is it Yulia or Marina by chance?
