BIG BIG NEWS!!!!

We're going to Russia!!!!

We got the call this afternoon. . .Actually, I got the call from our Travel Agent that she had been told by Dr. D, the Russia Coordinator, that we have a court date. She gave me the information I need in order to order our Visa's and a tentative itenerary and then said I should call her on Monday about our travel arrangements. . .I then called Bethany, our agency, to check everything out! I can't beleive it! Here is what we know about our itenerary:

March 18th Leave the U. S.
March 19th Arrive in Moscow
March 21st Medical Exams for me and Pat
March 22 Leave for Krasnoyarsk at 9:00 pm on Aeroflot
March 23 and March 24 Visitation with Aidan
March 25 th COURT DATE!!!!
March 26- April 4th Waiting period (we'll hopefully see Aidan every day except weekends)
April 9th Return to Moscow Go to Embasy for Aidan's Visa application
April 11th Receive Aidan's Visa
April 14th Apply for Russian Registration for Aidan
April 15th Receive Aidan's Russian Registration
April 16th Leave for USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it is crazy. What will we do between March 25th and April 4th??? God knows. . .But, I'm sure he'll give us a hint!

We're in the planning stages for Aidan's baptism. Stay tuned for day, time and place! It will be exciting.

More to come on this. Way more to say than I can say right now.

Blessings!
