We still haven't received a court date. Sveta had to get more forms signed and that has taken more time, but she is doing her best and I am grateful to have such a competent facilitator. I am hopeful that she may be able to go to court this Friday and get us our court date.
It is becoming clear that if we get our court date this week or the next that Tyler & I could be in Russia for Christmas. I have shed tears thinking that I will be apart from Anna, Keith, & Iryna during this wonderful time of year. We even decorated our house for Christmas early so I could get some time with it in case we leave soon.
I am trying to think of some positive things that I can do if I am in Russia. I can bring my Christmas music and play for the children at the orphanage. I also can buy sweets and treats and perhaps bring some little toys and wrap them for my new boys and other orphans. Maybe get some shoes to take for orphans. Have any of you been separated from your children for Christmas so you could bring home your new children? I am up for some ideas!
