The celebrating begins!

Reed Ilya and Scarlett Lena will officially join our family. (in ten days that is!)



Court was very quick, easy and totally freezing. Sasha said it was her quickest court trip! They didn’t even ask us why we want to adopted when we are so young. Which we were totally anticipating. No questions about why we want to adopt or why Ukraine or anything. WOW!

Sasha said it is very possible that we will be home for Christmas. She hopes to send us to Kiev for our last 2-3 days on Monday the 20th. We would really like to be home for Christmas.

I have a special request… tomorrow is Aaron’s birthday. He is very happy to be here adopting and excited about being a papa/father/zaza. But, he admitted he’s still a bit homesick for red velvet cupcakes. Will you all wish him a happy birthday, please? He shares his birthday with his sister Rachel, who has been extremely supportive throughout the whole process… please wish her a happy birthday too!
