THEY ARE FREE!!!!

Parker, Danil, and Josslyn have officially let the building!!!  Busting them out of the orphanage went very smoothly.  We've already fed them and bathed Josslyn(I just had to get her hair clean asap so that I could play with it!). Right now I am at a coffee shop in the mall with Alik and Josslyn at my side.  We had to move out of our apartment at noon and are staying the rest of the afternoon and evening and a little room.  I don't have internet there, so I had to steal away to the coffee shop to post quickly and schedule flights home.  We found out this morning that we have our appointment at the US Embassy to get the kid's visa TOMORROW!!!  We hope to get the visas on Friday and fly home on Saturday!!  I will post as soon as I get the chance once I get back in Kiev.  Please be praying that everything at the Embassy goes smoothly.  They have been discriminating against American who adopt children with HIV and are giving them a tough time getting visas for their children.  Out of EVERYTHING in our adoption process, the Embassy has been the thing I have been most worried and stress about.  Pray things go smoothly! 

Dos vi danya!!(See you later!)
