Have Visa, Will Travel




















I really was not sure this day would ever come but we have completed this adoption process and are scheduled to leave Kiev in the morning.
We got the visa shortly after noon and then were driven to our 4th apartment. We spent most of the afternoon repacking stuff. Then this evening we introduced Steven to the Metro and McDonalds. We even got to introduce him to Lyndi and Boston.

Thanks everyone for standing with us through all of this. Without your prayers I honestly do not believe this day would have ever arrived.
