We have our date!! After 2.5 long weeks of waiting, we were notified that our appointment is scheduled for October 25. We will fly to Eastern Europe on October 23, arrive on the 24th, go to our appointment on the 25th, pick up our referral paperwork on the 26th, get on an overnight train to Vika’s region and meet her on October 27!!

This is a later appointment than we had originally expected (I know of four other families submitted the same day as us who have appointments on October 14) but this will give us some extra time to get our affairs in order and plan our trip. And we are SO thankful to have a Monday appointment, as this will allow us to travel on the weekends and take full advantage of the business days to conduct the adoption-related business we will have to do.

Thanks for your prayers- we’re almost there!
