Day 19, Friday Night Date!

Day 8 of our 10 day wait is in the books. Not that I was worried, no one has come forward for Lizzie in her 8 years at the orphanage, but I can say that we are officially out of the woods now! Our court and any official involved in the adoption has the weekend off, so we will get the decree on Monday morning!

I'm picking Lizzie up at 10am on Saturday and spending the whole day with her. Sunday, I will get her at 9am. Both nights, she has to be back by 6:30pm. I am pressing Tanya to spring her on Monday and I will know for sure on Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile. Lizzie and I enjoyed a little father-daughter date. We went out to a new restaurant in Kherson called Lenin's. It was great! Best Greek salad in Kherson!

2 more days!

Boy, there is something unmistakably different in Lizzie's face--a true radiance that wasn't apparent before. The pictures taken last summer show a beautiful girl with a lovely smile, but the wattage has definitely increased since court day! Whatever little veil of concern was there has been lifted. What a beautiful thing. I am so happy for you all!

You are absolutely right! I didn't see that before and you hit the nail on the head! She's absolutely glowing! Wow, thanks for pointing that out!
