Great friends and a great day
We spent today with Joel and Mary Ellen Ragains, and it was great! We ate at the TGI Friday's (yep that's right, just like home...except), did some shopping, rode the metro (subway) to their side of the river, and had a great dinner prepared by Mary Ellen complete with chocolate chip cookies and brownies for dessert. I'm sure we won't eat like this for a whlle. Thanks ME and J for your wonderful hospitality. Got to get packing, 'cause tomorrow we are off to the Odessa Region via bus. We leave Kyiv at noon and should arrive by 5:30. Then off to the city (I'll get the name up as soon as I can spell it!!!). Monday should bring a trip to the insepector's office and the orphanage, and we think the first visit with N. We covet your prayers. He must willingly consent to this adoption as much as we do. We are praying that past disappointments will not muddy the waters.
