Safe in Ukraine

After a whole day traveling by plane, train and automobile....we have arrived safely and we are sitting here at Becky DeWett's kitchen table. The flights were uneventfull. Heidi got a few hours of sleep on the Dulles to Frankfurt flight. We had the whole middle 5 seat row, so she got to stretch out. I however, never sleep well sitting upright, so I watched 3 movies and listened to some Blues Radio...a little music to set the mood for the weeks to come :)

We had the priviledge of going through security twice in Frankfurt. But all went well with me. Heidi, the trouble maker, had to practically get undressed everytime she went throught the "magna-tron". At one point, the German security lady took possesion of Heidi's moneybelt. Yikes! After a little explanation, she got it back.

So here we are, enjoying catching up with dear friends and decompressing from being stuffed in flying tubes for 14 hours. We will go to church tommorow and then visit the Boyarka orphanage. Monday morning is the SDA appointment, so we are excited about that.

Thank you for your prayers and thoughts. God Bless you all. Signing off for now before I fall asleep and drool all over the keyboard! I miss our kids already.

I know what you mean about trying to sleep on the plane. I am getting more confident in who security chooses to search. My Sister, wife and Heidi. And you and I never get any extra attention. Glad you are all safe, sound and sleeping.

So glad you are there!! Can't wait to hear how it goes Monday! We have several families from our group in Texas who are in Kiev right now!! Camille and her husband, John, who help run our hosting/adoption ministry, are finishing up their adoption and were treated to a stay at the Hyatt for two nights. They are in Kiev until Wednesday or Thursday.
Who knows - maybe you guys will run into them...

Congratulations! Praying your days are blessed and safe, especially with elections tomorrow. Both our kids were at Boyarka until transferred to their institution. We were blessed to take both of them back to let the medical director know they finally found homes. God bless your continued journey! Don't forget to post pics!
