We are in the internet cafe fighting for a spot amongst a bunch of young kids playing war games. We had two days of wonderful visits with the children. We are blessed and pleased. They seem very healthy and happy. Language has been a struggle, but they seem to understand just enough as we do them. The children have accepted us as their adoptive parents. We are now waiting on a court date. This could take 5-10 working days. We may not leave here on our scheduled flight, but won't know until Friday.
We don't have a way to post photos, but we've taken alot and will post them when we can.
We are staying above a nice Ukrainian restaurant/disco. They give us two meals per day. The meals are different, but very good. They consist of salad...cucumbers & tomatoes. Second course is potatoes or rice with some kind of chicken or pork and hard boiled eggs. Final course is dessert. It is like a Mexican Soppapilla. It's really great and different. We have breakfast at 10:00am and dinner at 6:00pm. No English TV. We spend lots of time reading books and playing card games.
We take a taxi to see M & O at the orphanage. It takes about 15 minutes. Our first meeting with M was on Friday. He was dressed smartly in blazer and slacks and a HUGE smile! He hasn't changed much and he and Tim sat together right away. O came running in the room and hugged us both and would not leave my side. She is beautiful and has a smile that will light up a room.
We met their older brother and spent time with all three kids together. We all have a good understanding and everything is going to work out.
We are leaving now to go shopping. Our first adventure to the market.
Will post again later.
Love you all!
Sharon & Tim
