One more form

So last Friday I got the following email from Victoria:

Dear Jill,

Just wanted to let you know I got an e-mail from Sveta today that she has received both packages, from you and from Olga.  She will be reviewing the documents over the weekend and hopes to let me by Monday.

Woo-hoo! I was so excited that the dossier and the Ukrainian birth certificates had arrived on Friday instead of the following Monday. Then I received this email:

Dear Jill,

Sveta just got back to me that unfortunately judge has visitation hours only on Friday’s now L  And there is also a new procedure that Sveta can only start getting all the documents for court for the kids – birth certificate copies, copies of parental relinquishments, etc., once the judge approves your dossier, so it will be another 3-4 weeks if everything goes well next Friday L

Sorry for the bad news…

Yeah...so, we won't be leaving for Russia this month and maybe not next month, either. I am hoping and praying that we will be able to leave for Russia AND bring home the boys before Christmas. I would appreciate your prayers, as well, for this to come to pass.

Yesterday morning we got a surprise call from Sveta - our facilitator in Russia. She said that one of the forms was missing a line stating Tyler's monthly wage. Even though this is in another form in the dossier, it has to be on this second form as well. So, Tyler put together the form today and had it notarized and tomorrow...you guessed it...I will be driving BACK to Tallahassee to apostille one document and then I will mail it to Sveta from there. I went to the library and checked out HARRY POTTER (first book) on tape and plan to listen to it it on the drive. I enjoyed THE HOBBIT last time I made this trek and I am hopeful that Harry will keep me going tomorrow. Although I don't like the idea of spending the whole day in the car, I am grateful for something that I can do to help bring my boys home.
