Saturday: AWANA Games Day. I was the coach again this year, we ended up not doing too good, we took home 3rd for both teams. Our morning team had 13 points in disqualifications and that hurt us sooo much. I guess I will be coaching again next year. Andrew on the other hand for the boys had a terrific day. He excelled at all of his events and I was so proud of him and his hard work.
Monday - I sent in our Visa Application. We should get that back next week. I also went to the DuPage County again to get an updated copy of our Marriage License. The one we had on file in Russia was about to expire, it needs to be less than a year old for our court date. When I got home, in the mail was our "FBI FINGERPRINTING RESULTS". YAHOO!!!! AMEN!!!! Now I think we have everything we need. That is until the Judge comes back from Vacation and gives us more forms that she may want. Who knows? We are just thrilled that we will be going.
On Monday night, Tyler was inducted into the National Honor Society. This is a huge honor for him, and we are so proud of him.
Tuesday - went downtown to get the marriage license apistilled. Sent it off to our agency.
The group of kids that were recieved into NHS
Yes, Tyler is taller than Tom now!
I thought this was so pretty
It is on top of the bus stop in Downtown Chicago
So our schedule looks like this:
April 9 we leave
Aril 10 arrive
April 11 - we will visit the Hermitage Museum
April 12-13 hopefully be able to see our daughter
April 14 Court
April 15, come home
We will not know when we can go back to pick up our daughter until court. They will officially give us the date then. In the adoption world this is known as "GOTCHA DAY". When that happens, Tyler and I will travel to go get her and do all of our necessary documents and embassy forms, we will have to travel to Moscow for that trip. It will take about a week to get all the forms and embassy items done.
