Appointment Results

We had our appointment this morning at 9:00. We saw files of 5 little girls and 10 little boys. We were surprised by the number of files we were offered.

We feel that we have found our child. He is almost 5 years old and is in the Kharkov region. We have gotten permission from the orphanage and will leave here tomorrow at 3:30 to pick up our referral. We will leave here Thurs night or Fri morning to travel. It will be a 5 hour drive, but we feel this is the best way to travel.

We have recovered from jet lag thanks to a good night's sleep, some coffee and McDonald's. We only ventured out once today on our own today to go to McDonald's which is actually attached to our apartment building. We figure we will save the sightseeing for when we return with our child.

Tim is excited about McDonald's and suggested that we go there for breakfast.

We are learning something every day here - like how to walk in the icy snow!

Will update as we can. Do not know if we will have internet access in region.

Keep praying!

Love,
R & T

Congratulations! Can't wait to hear of your first meeting! Hopefully Kharkiv won't be as hilly either so the ice won't be so treacherous!

What a blessing! We will be praying for that first meeting and can't wait to hear about it. It's so comforting to have something familiar. I know we over dosed on McDonalds while we were there! Be brave and try some local flavor as well. The borscht is quite yummy! I am so excited to hear about the little boy God picked out for you!
