Sorry the last post was a little grim, but that's where I was when I wrote it last night!
Today was better. A little hurried this a.m. with a few gaps in communication, but our embassy appointment was a breeze. Their staff was so helpful and kind. We go back in the morning for her medical exam and then our visa appointment in the afternoon.
I almost cried when Tatiana handed me her passport yesterday. Her passport. To go home.
I almost cried again when she told me she had been baptized in the orthodox church and gave me her baptism certificate with a small silver crucifix. This is the ONE thing that belonged to her that she is bringing home from Ukraine.
We had a nice day after the embassy this morning. We rode back to our apartment with another RR family. I fed AG and put her down for an overdue nap before we headed back out.
Just incase I can't remember who this slice of perfection is laying next to me:
I was watching a movie to pass the time and kept hearing banging outside on our porch. I went out and what seemed like BUCKETS of water was rolling off the roof from the melting snow and ice. I don't know why, but it made me smile.
View from the 8th floor (at least I'll be coming home with trim thighs) :
I'm done cooking in Ukraine and really didn't want to buy any food since we are leaving, which means....
She had her own order of fries. I hadn't eaten in 27 hours and had no desire to share mine. I just broke off little pieces and she did fine! She probably only ate the equivalent of two fries while waiting for her bottle to cool.
Three trips out today and I never did find diapers. I have ONE left. Anna Gray is going to bed now wearing tights and a dish towel so I can save the one for tomorrow. I can't believe tomorrow is our LAST DAY IN UKRAINE!!
