We're Home and are working to get back ASAP

We made it home a little after midnight last night and finally went to sleep at about 2:30 a.m. It was so good to see Brady, Madison, and Blake and our bed! We got up and went to church this morning and about part way through the service Justin and I realized just how tired we really are.

When going through the mail, I found that we received both our state and FBI clearances in the mail so those will be good for another 6 months. We plan to get almost every piece of paperwork over to Russia for translation in the next couple of weeks. The doctors’ appointments are made for January. Their reports are only good for 3 months. Between the holidays and the wait for the database clearance letter to arrive from Moscow we think it is better to just wait a bit or else we would be paying for the medicals evaluations at least twice. We will be doing everything we can to get back to Russia ASAP and bring our little guy home!!

Congratulations!!
We, too, got back last night after meeting our little guy. Believe me, I completely understand the drive to get back asap.

Good luck on the rest of the journey.

Glad you made it home just before this snow hit!!! Are you doing just bloodwork and chest x-rays here? I was told that everything has to be done there. Grrr. Hope the transition back to Central time is painless :)

Welcome home! Glad you're back safe and sound. Blessings as you scramble to get all that paperwork done. Did Lana and Irina indicate that you have a good shot at a quick turnaround to go back?

I know everyone kept saying to me...well, at least the holidays will keep you busy, but I know that that made me think- no, I'll just be more sad b/c he won't be home with us. I pray you aren't stuck in that frame of mind, as I was a few weeks ago. Praying you can return ASAP!!! :)
