I finally arrived in Ukraine yesterday, after some delays. Following a wild car ride last night from Odessa to Belgorod, I went to the orphanage to see the girls. Luda told me that they have called her every day to ask when Papa is coming. It was great to see them again. They are very sweet and are trying to be patient. The next step for us is to go to the regional office where they were born to get the new birth certificates. Since I arrived too late to go this week, I have to wait now until Tuesday to do that. This is a huge disappointment. We can’t start the passport process until we have that done. Passports usually take about a week, but maybe there will be a miracle and it will go faster.
After much effort I found an internet cafe where I am writing this. The computer is mostly in Russian, so it’s not easy.
