The paperchase begins

We started the day by sleeping in a little. Up until today, Erick has been up around 6 A.M. courtesy of the light from our skylight. A little overcast snowy day combined with a little Benadryl, and we got to sleep in! Anyway, we saw N for a little while this morning. We took the shoes, and sure enough, they were too small. Nevertheless, he put them on and wore them proudly. So proudly in fact that every time he heard someone out in the hall, he open the door to our sitting room and showed them off. Too funny! I can't wait to see his reaction when he get all new clothes in a few days. I hope the wonder isn't gone by Christmas....

After the orphanage, we set off with Oleg on Mr. Toad's wild ride all over B-D. When we got back in the car, he was on the phone with our facilitator, and she was giving him quite a to do list for the afternoon. We got copies of his birth certificate from the orphange, got more copies made, dropped the copies off at the notary, got the original of the birth certificate from the Inspector, when back to the notary to get the notarized copies of the birth certificate, and headed off to the market for more shoes! Whew, now you have an idea of what the next couple of days will be like.

We think that we will head off in the morning to Sarata (sp?) where N was born to get the birth certificate. I understood correctly today, we will go immediately to Odessa to get it registered. I think that means that we will have 2 trips to Odessa in the next couple of days. Really, I have no idea. Apparently, we are on a need to know basis, and right now I guess we don't need to know! No big deal. It's not like we can do anything to change it. We're just praying for smooth sailing!

We'll try to post something tomorrow. Not sure when we can, but we'll post as soon as we can!

Blessings,

Rick
