Thursday, the 10th

(I had to ask Mark what day it was about 6 times today, thus the title of the post!)

Today we got up and went to see the girls again at 9am. Sasha had to get more paperwork signed at the orphanage as well. We played with the girls for about an hour and a half and then took them back to their groupas. Then we had to wait for Sasha...until 1:30pm (yeah, again no eating or bathroom--prepare yourself, adoptive parents!).

We left the orphanage and went to the social worker's office again. We walked over to Amstor while Sasha stayed and worked on documents. They finished with those at about 3pm, and then we went to get the head lady's signature. I don't know who she was, but she didn't want to sign our documents! Finally they were signed and we hurried to the courthouse to file our documents before 5pm (it was 4:50 at this point). We dropped the social worker back off, then drove to the bus station to send our documents back to Kyiv.

We are allowed to visit the girls twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, but if you're following our schedule you'll see we've only been able to see them in the morning. However, we are done paperchasing for the moment and should be able to see them twice tomorrow. We are hopeful to maybe hear our court date tomorrow!


J on the left, B on the right. Like I said, B is tiny--she's a year older than J!

So sweet!!! You are really messing with your age line-up, but I love it! So that makes 8,7,7,6,6,5? They looks like fast friends already and I'm sure will make friends quickly with the others. I can't wait to hear more and have all 4 of you safe and sound at home.
