I didn't think we would have made it here, but somehow we are. Our family booked a trip to Cuba two weeks ago, (non refundable) and within half an hour of coming home our agency called. Dale had worked out some of the kinks and now here we are.
Dale missed Cuba, to all of our disappointment and I flew four countries in 24 hours to get here, jet lag hasn't set in, while Dale is struggling with the lack of sleep.
I'm in a state of disbelief and shock at us being here and doing this. I was so certain this wasn't going to happen. We've had our first appt with the SDA (I believe that is what it is called) And we are off to collect our paperwork in a few minutes.
My Russia is passable at least and I can pick up a few words, we had no hot water here, and that I could say we needed some, was awesome. Dale and I picked up a couple of colouring books, and the detail to the Disney Princesses' dresses was beautiful, I would love to buy more of them, because I know my niece would love them.
On a side note, our translator, and cordinator are wonderful, so happy to have them. Thank you for all of your support, prayers and words of comfort.
