They will be arriving at 7:52 pm Sunday night on United Flight #6469 for those of you who would like to join us in welcoming them home.
Griselda and I would like to say Thank You to you all for all of your love, support, prayers, and kindnesses during our adoption journey. It has not been easy as so many of you know from your own experiences, but we could not have done it without all of your prayers and support.

Vlad is excited to see me and he wants to go home soon. Dima was asking Oleg to take him to his home town. He said he was tired and did not like to be in the orphanage. He has a dream and he wants to have a little computer, so I wanted to show him this one, but I do not want all the kids to see it.

When I got home from church today Griselda had sent an email which was waiting for me. I purchased a small laptop for her the night before leaving so she could keep in contact and not have to walk to the internet cafe by herself (It is a 15 minute walk from the apartment). I was amazed how cheap the laptop was. It was a fourth of the cost I paid three years ago for my PC Laptop (Which has not been as good as they advertise) and is much better with more high tech hardware. Her trip was fine, but she said she was dead tired as one can imagine after traveling for more that 24 hours strait. She said she really loved Frankfurt, but I do not know how you can love Frankfurt from the airport so it must not have been too bad. On our previous trip, our plane was in Munich both times. Griselda did make it to Sumy and she is in the same apartment we were in before. She says the weather is "super nice " and is actually quite warm there. The weather report I looked at for Sumy did say it would be in the 60s F for a couple of days then it will be cold again. Griselda said that Oleg had completed a lot of the work that could be done without one of us being there so that will help move the process along. We hope very much they can be home by Thanksgiving but there is no guarantee.
