Back in Kiev..

Someone LOVES riding the Ukranian train!

What is the world are you doing to my mouth Dad?

Our home for the next few days high on a perch in dowtown Kiev.

Nice train ride. Ava slept well and ate well. She is a happy little girl.
  • Tomorrow we rest.
  • Monday to the Medical clinic for an exam required by US Embassy.
  • On the to embassy to get her papers in order.

We are working on plane tickets now to come home, leaving either Tuesday or Wednesday.

We'll keep you posted.

That has to be the fastest Ukrainian adoption on record, truly! Congratulations, and welcome to the club! ---Andrea Roberts, Reece's Rainbow Down Syndrome Adoption Ministry

Wow, not every girl in the Ukraine gets a permanent visa to enter the USA on her 4th birthday, with parents, brothers and sisters! This is quite a gift. Maybe you'll enter the USA on the exact day of her birth. From OKC, standing by monitoring, just 1 hour from getting on an Amtrak this is Opa, Oma, Simeon, Liesel, Jude, Hope Aunt Marlita, Evianna and Sebastian. We are all dressed up in Cowboy outfits.
