We're here!!!!

Just a quick note to let you all know we are here in Kiev.

Our flight was pretty uneventful until we were landing and Morgan threw up all over the seat. She was so good the whole flight too, poor thing. She isn't sick - I think it was just a combination of being tired and all the travel.

Our apartment is very cute. It is a one bedroom and we have a washer, a kitchen, air conditioning and internet access!!! We are also in walking distance of the SDA. I couldn't ask for more.

We went and had pizza for lunch and it was pretty good.

Now we are going to take a nap. It is only 8:30am at home and we should just be waking up. None of us slept very much on the plane.

I'll try to post a few pictures of our apartment later. Also, we only have a temporary phone for right now, but will be getting another one tomorrow. I will pass on the number.

Our SDA appt. is tomorrow morning at 11:30am. I'm still not sure how things will go. I'll let you know tomorrow afternoon.

I can't believe we are finally here!!!!!


  1. I will pray for a quick adoption process! Since I have been through the process I am thankful for other couples who are courageous and have taken the plunge! It is not an easy path, that is for sure. But with God all things are possible!

    I will follow your journey and pray for you all!

    God Bless!

  2. Hoping it all goes great ~hugs~

  3. Glad you made it with no trouble. Prayers for your family. Will be praying for your appt tomorrow.

  4. I'm happy that you had an uneventful flight. Well....except for the end.

    I've been through the process too, and will be checking in often and praying for you as you go on this roller coaster ride.

    Please keep us posted......and let us know specifics we can pray about.

  5. Praying praying praying!!!! I went out and bought a gift for the Sloans today- just in case:)

    Poor Morgan!! I bet I will do that also- I don't travel well, I know Rich is REALLY looking forward to planes, trains, and automobiles with me:)

  6. I've followed your recent developments through the RR yahoo group. I'm praying so hard for you today and the next few days! I'm especially praying for God's peace - the kind that passes anyones understanding.
