10 more days at LEAST!

I got an email last night answering a TON of questions that I asked our facilitators...poor women!

Anyway, the email stated that she had just received our extra documents and would be taking them to the judge.  Once he has everything he will let her know if we need to send any additional documents.  She said it would be at least 10 days before she hears anything...and I assume that's business days.  So, 2 more weeks of praying and hoping and waiting.  PRAYER:: That he doesn't want any documents.  Or, if he does, that he's ok with us just bringing them to court!

The other, most fabulous, news in the email was about the process once we get to Russia.  We will get to see Sveta at least once before we go to court. Then we'll go to court.  After that we wait 10 days for the court proceedings to become official...then we can pick Sveta up while we wait for her passport.  I thought she had to wait at the orphanage...but I was wrong.  I'm SO glad I was!!  Anyway, this is big for us, because it means that while in Russia we can be together instead of an hour away from our precious daughter.  YAY!!!

That's all the news for now.  As soon as we hear anything, I'll let you know.  Right now I'm just praying we are back home before Christmas (because Russia shuts down around our Christmas through the first week of December!)


  1. The wait continues, but good news. God is good. All the time. I agonize with you. Hang in there... we are praying.


  2. Great news! I know the wait has been tough... hang in there. I love you WWW!
