12/7/09 - "Gotcha Day"!!!
Jennifer and Caleb picked up Alexandra from the orphanage yesterday at 9:00 AM (Eastern Time)!
The transition has gone quite well! She is full of smiles, full of "almost 2 year old" energy, and full of mischief! Needless to say, she's fitting right in with our family!
Jennifer, Caleb, and Alexandra get home Saturday, 12/12/09! Micah, Seth, and I can not wait!!!
THANKS for your continued kind words, support, and prayer!

We just finished with our court date here in Kaliningrad! I haven't been this nervous in a long time!
It's a little surreal to be standing in a Russian courtroom before the judge, the prosecutor, a court secretary, the social worker, and a doctor from the orphanage while having everything interpreted by a nice lady standing next to us while trying to maintain eye contact with whomever may be speaking to us in Russian!
The judge asked alot of questions, we were able to answer them to the best of our ability, and she granted Jennifer and I the right to adopt Alexandra!!!
Talk about FANTASTIC!
Now we must wait the mandated 10 days and come back to bring her home!!!
THANKS for your continued prayer and support!

Second visit with Alexandra this trip went very well!
5 things we have noticed while playing with her:
- She is extremely shy (at least initially)
- She is very loving
- She is SMART!
- Her laugh is infectious
- She loves books, toys, her new doll, and "high sky"
While in Kaliningrad, we met another couple from the US also going thru the adoption journey! In fact, we had a wonderful dinner with them tonight!!! Kind of a Thanksgiving dinner for two American couples in Russia! No turkey & no stuffing. But, we did have chicken and mashed potatoes (THANKS Shelly and Scott)!
The trip continues to be tremendous!
Please pray for us tomorrow! We will be in a Russian court room discussing our adoption!
More to come...
