Now comes the whirlwind of the next seven days getting ready to see Baby B! I can't believe you're leaving ONE week from today. I'm so relieved that things turned around so fast and I'm anxious for you to get there and through court! Thinking of you as you prepare!

How exciting to have an itinerary! Even if it has a big IFFFFF attached to it. Imagine, by the time you get back home with Baby B, everything will be green!

Well, looks like we won't be in Vlad at the same time, but we're thrilled that you'll soon be going back. We won't be too far behind. We'll be praying that your schedule goes like clockwork. Blessings!

I can just feel the excitment oozing out of this post!!! How well I remember those last minute preparations, though we had a month to do all that you're doing in one week....
Don't know if you can or not, but the medical part is cheaper in Vlad than it is in Moscow. I think they do the medicals on Tuesday afternoons if my memory serves me correctly. From what I've heard, it's also easier to do in Vlad.... Take it for what it's worth....
Blessings as you button things up at home.

So very exciting :o) Just curious why you aren't just doing the medical in Vlad? Are they not doing them there anymore? No worries, it shouldn't be bad either way...thought it was kinda comical.

Can't wait to follow along in this joyous time.
