No travel dates yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are thinking that they are waiting for this talk to happen on April 29th and 30th. than we will hear where we stand . It has been 20 days and nothing yet. We called our agency and they didn't hear anything.The agency told us also there is a Holiday in Russia in the fist week of May so that doesn't look good. If anything maybe will hear something after the holiday. We are so ready to go to see her and just hold her and kiss her. I hope everything will work out and we hear some good news tomorrow on how the meeting went.

1st trip??????

I hope we hear something from our agency this week on what is going on. I just read something on line that the adoptions are still going but the court dates are not being set so that means if thats true everything will be backed up . So that would mean longer waits for court dates or until Russia feels comfortable with americans adopting and the treaty is signed. I am not sure what to think of all this. I can't imagine going on the first trip and than waitng even longer than 4 months for a court date. This is quite stressful. So stressful that I got a coldsore from all this stress. I called my doctor and told him I want this thing to go away as soon as possible so he prescibed me something stronger than abreva and its already looking better. I definitely don't want to be going on the first trip like this. I never get these things but I was super,super stressed about this suspension hanging over our heads. I have to be positive that everything will work out somehow as it always does. So now we arejust waiting,again!!!

Are we suspended????

I am so confused. First thing in the morning the answer was yes and now some are saying no. I am so stressed out about this. Hopefully we'll get some more information really soon. Hoping for the best for all of us.

Russian adoptions suspened!!!

We are just devestated. I wonder for how long and it said ALL adoptions so I am wondering if even the people that had court can't take their kids home. I saw it this morning and my heart just stopped. I did my crying routine already. My heart is just breaking for all of us and of course all the children waitng for their families. I hope this gets resolved quickly and it doesn't take months or even years.

Getting ready!

We are preparing for the up coming first trip. We got our visa pictures and started to fill out the visa form. (That was fun) We should know sometime next week when that would be. I am finally going this week to get my second part of the Hepatitis shot. We are staying positive in midst of all the news about the returned Russian boy. so far we got the thumbs up from our agency. We are excited,scared,nervous,anxious ,happy just everything rolled into one. I think of the moment when we get to hold her and kiss her and just be with her. That would make things more real. I can't believe how far we have come already. I remember when we just started this whole process and what an experience it has been. I have to say waiting for the referral was pretty painful I don't want to even imagine how it will be when we have to leave her behind after the first trip. I know we will make it because so many before us did but it will be very hard and I am sure there will be a lot of tears. Thank you everyone for all your support.

Hope Maggie sleeps tonight

Maggie was so concerned about what is going on with Russia that she barely slept last night. We understand Russia's concern over this latest incident, and agree that there should be consequences, but not the extreme decision to shut off all US adoptions. There are over 700,000 kids in need of homes in Russia.

We will continue to wait and hope for the best...... Our child is waiting for us, and we are waiting for her.

I am freaking out!!!!

It was a happy day yesterday until I read the story about the Russian boy that was put on the plane alone with a not. Great,this idiot for a woman may have ruined adoptions for other people. I just don't get it. It takes a lot of money,time,paper chasing to do an adoption and than she just takes the easiest way out. She disposed of him like he was nothing. I am so sad about this. My husband spoke with our agency about this and they told us that we'll go ahead with everything BUT there is a chance that Russia may put a stop to it's adoptions. I feel bad for us and for all the people who are so close to getting their child home . This is just horrible and if Russia does closes its doors we will be heart broken.

We received the referral today!!!

We are so excited. It was such a surprise to get a phone call during lunch. It's a little girl. We are very excited and can't wait to meet her...That"s about it. I won't be writing anything more about that until the adoption is final.
