Sorry it has been a while since we posted. We are obviously here and the trip was rather uneventful except when we went to the departing airport and KLM decided they were going to change my journey through Paris-- Yikes. We got it straightened out arrived with no hickups. First night was a nightmare apartment. So, we moved to a nicer apartment with internet. Come to find out -- no internet. So, posting has been a challenge. We've taken up residency from time to time a the Radisson and are using their internet.
The city is beautiful. However it has been raining the whole time we've been here and haven't had a chance to do any siteseeing yet. Hopefully tomorrow before we leave.
Now to the important stuff -- we had our appointment at the SDA this morning. It was the most nerve racking experience I've ever encountered. While we were waiting, there was a German couple waiting for their 3rd appointment and were a reck. They didn't help my situation. I felt their stress on top of mine and you can imagine how things multiplied. My stepdaughter, Meghan had to hold me up as we waited on a flight of stairs to be called for the appointment in a small corridor and a very small area. We were shown 7 files of children. Only one single girl who was very cute, but something just didn't feel right. It's amazing how you just get a hunch and I had to go with it. We were then shown files for twins -- a girl and a boy, 10 years old and they are adorable and ironically just became available today. We will be leaving tomorrow on a 14 hour overnight train journey to go and meet them in East Ukraine. That is what we know for now. They are said to be healthy and very normal and if all goes well when we meet them, I will proceed. Please continue to say a prayer for us because your prayers are working. We can finally breathe and hope for the best. It has been a very trying couple of days and I don't know how I would have gotten through them without Meghan. Hopefully tomorrow before we leave, we can take some pictures of this beautiful place and share them with you. My best to all of you and thanks for your continued support, Heather
