After we saw her, we took a ride into the "southwest suburbs" of St. Petersburg to a place called Peterhoff. It is the Summer Palace of Peter the I. It is famous for its many fountains and beautiful landscape. Well right now, there is no water in the fountains and the landscape is not yet planted, but it was still beautiful. The fountains are to open on May 1 and go until September. It is located on the Finnish Gulf. Tom really enjoyed getting out of the city to actually see grass and trees.
We are still having our court date for Wednesday, so thank you everyone for praying and keeping us in your prayers. There are so many children in the orphanages here, and so many loving parents looking to have their children home in America. It has been a truly wild ride in International Adoption, but it has led us to our daughter so God is good.
Last night after we ate dinner around 10:00 (yes that late)
We get to look at this beautiful church everytime we walk out our door.
It is truly amazing!
