Quick Update!!

Well we haven't updated much in the past couple days because there really isn't much to update on. We are in the middle of our 10 day wait, which is just that, a wait. No paperwork can be processed, nothing, so we have our twice daily visits with Jacob and then come home to our apartment or make a trip to the store (about a 15 minute walk) or market and that is about our entire day.

Tomorrow evening we leave for Kiev, arrive there Thursday early morning. We will go to the Embassy and sign all necessary paperwork before Joe leaves for home bring and early on Friday morning. Then I will remain in Kiev until Sunday evening and then will take the train back here with Yulia. Monday marks the END OF OUR 10 DAY WAIT!!! YAHOO!! Then we can start paperwork for birth certificates and once we have those, we can apply for passports. That will consist of a lot of running on Monday and Tuesday. I may miss a couple visits with Jacob during these days, but then on Wednesday or Thursday will be GOTCHA DAY!! The day where I walk with him out the orphanage doors NEVER to return again!! Oh I can't wait til that day and it will be here before you know it!

Once we have him, we wait for his passport to arrive and then we can head back to Kiev to finish up the paperwork for the Visa and the medical exam. Then we will be out of here. I anticipate being home by the 12th of June. We will have to play it by ear over the next couple weeks!!

So I will leave you with another couple pics of Jacob!! He is really so snuggly with us now and I think he realizes that we are mommy & daddy!!




This is what gets us in trouble almost every day from his caretakers. He is sooo tired when we take him back that he falls asleep during the last 15 minutes of his visit!! Little Stinker, then he probably doesn't sleep for them during nap time. Just a few more days honey and you can gladly take two naps a day for mommy!!!

He is a finger sucker too.. Tastes yummy!! Not sure if in this picture he was sucking his finger or in deep thought!!
