God heard our prayers!!!

What a day!

Mom & Dad got our mail around 11:45am at the house and the state records check was there!! We meet at the commuter lot at 94 & 40 and off I went to get signatures. The next stop was to get the cover sheets notarized by Mary Beth, thanks MB! Then I headed downtown STL for the Secreatry of State's office. What nice ladies!! We looked at pics of Pink and talked about adoption a bit while they appostilled the two records.

I took my two valuable documents and headed for CHI... Meet Anna in the lobby and she took the documents to get sent to Moscow. Thanks Anna!!

Now we can enjoy Christmas!

Hold on Pink! Mom & Dad are getting close.

More news to come.

Please pray for the State report..

We are still waiting for the background check from the state of Missouri. Would love to get it back today so we can run it down to get appostilled.

Would like to say congrats to my little cousin & her husband on the birth of their son Caleb!

Please pray for Pink.

They cashed the check!

Amy logged into our checking account this AM and found that the state of Missouri has cashed our check for the "state" background check. Praise God! Hopefully we will get that back this week and be able to drive it to be appostilled. They know the FBI check takes longer and will schedule court without it.
Last night we had a great evening. We went to the Trans Siberian Orchestra Christmas concert, it rocked! Justin had a blast. They played over 2 1/2 hours.

Please keep our daughter in your prayers.

Friday afternoon, I was able to turn in my physical exam paperwork to CHI. YEAH! Amy should get her's back this week and be able to get it over to CHI. Then all we have left is the MO State recorders check and the FBI recorders check. We are so close! Prayers for speedy processing are appreciated! Also prayers for a Moscow court date to be scheduled would be appreciated. Saturday I was able to install the cieling to floor PINK curtains for our daughter. I still need to steem them a little more, but they are up and look great. We need to get tie backs for them, but her room is getting close.
Sunday night Wentzville had there annual Christmas parade Amy, Justin & grandma attended.

I had an excting afternoon! I flew my first multi-enigne aircraft! 1.3 hours of adrenilin.

Praying for a court date..

Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts for a court date to be assigned! Not to be picky, but we would love to have a date as early in January as possible. The country of Russia celbrates the Russian Orthodox day of Christmas which is on Jan 7, so the have holiday until that following Monday Jan 11.
