Day 10, Court Tomorrow

Yes! We have court tomorrow at 11:40! Everything has gone according to plan...actually, we are ahead of schedule! Praise the Lord! After three hard years of working towards this moment, it is finally happening. It's hard to understand God's timing and plans, but we learned to let go and trust in The Plan.

If all goes well, and it should, Lizzie will forever walk out of the orphanage on Valentines Day, February 14th. She will no longer be an orphan! We will still have to do the mandatory 10 day wait after court, but we are in the home stretch now!

Heidi and Jordan will leave me and Lizzie tomorrow to head for home when we are done with court. Only one parent needs to be present for the finish-up work. Jordan has school, and Heidi is needed at home with the kids. Thank you again to all our friends and family for helping with our children! On her way out, she will go to the US embassy and do her half of the paperwork, which should be Friday. She should fly out Saturday and will arrive the same day.

All for now, we are at Andrei's parents house for dinner and the borscht is ready. I am being called.

I'll see about posting some pictures tonight about our orphanage visit to SB to see the 2008 campers. I'll also post after court tomorrow.

Yea! Good luck tomorrow! I'm getting nervous about leaving. We'll almost pass your wife in the air, but not quite. Safe travels to her and your daughter!

Amazing News!! It certainly is time for you and Lizzie to have a smooth time in the process! Many prayers will be said for a easy court hearing tomorrow

I am thrilled for you that things are going so smoothly! I will definitely pray about court tomorrow. Three years is a long time to wait - I know the wait is worth it.

Looking forward to reading the next entry!

Hey all! After so many trips and all that has happened, it really is nice to hear things going smoothly and quickly-finally. Hard to believe, but you could be home almost before we leave, again. Just think: only one more trip across the Atlantic...for now!! :)

It's almost time... I hope everything goes smoothly, and I pray that for a change the 10-day wait is waived.

You should be in court as I type this! I know everything will work out beautifully. Congratulations! Can't wait to read all about the details. :)

This is great. I am sure everything went well today and that part of the family is starting the journey back home. We continue to pray that this moves along smoothly and that Felix and Lizzie are home very soon.
