Day 4 - Train to Kherson

Heidi just called to say we have the referral for Rima. We did not get the boy's referral this go around. She and our Kiev translator, Nadia, went to the SDA while I stayed behind with the luggage. Oleg will be here to pick me up soon and take me to the train station where Heidi will be waiting. We will board the train at 9-ish pm and travel overnight to Kherson. So, the next time you will hear from us will be after we get there, go see the regional inspector, go to the orphanage, and travel to the sanatorium where Rima is being held. We will get to see our girl sometime tomorrow. We are excited!

You might want to have some pictures of Ashley, Natasha and Pasha handy on your laptop to show the inspector. Hope you are watching the flat screen instead of shakin' n bakin'!

ZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz..........!!! Blah, Blah, Blah-"...reigional director..", Blah, Blah, Blah-"...train...", Blah, Blah, Blah-"...next time..", Blah, Blah, Blah-"...sanitorium..." ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz...........!!!! Just like reading a passage out of I & II Snoozers!! That was as heart-felt as the fine print in a "Snuggie" commercial. Its got to be bad when the adoption process starts sucking the life out of the usually, well-written, energetic Felix! Oh, and by the way...ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz........!!
