We got ready quickly and grabbed a few snacks for the kids since we knew it would take a little while. Poor Hannah. It was too close to lunch time and she was getting hungry. We had to break out the food a little earlier than expected, but it worked out.
We arrived and turned in the paperwork from the medical exam yesterday. The consular representative told us it would be about an hour before the visas would be printed and ready. Then he extended a special invitation to us and the three other adopting families that had appointments today. The US Ambassador was wanting to have a small reception to meet and greet us! What a treat! So while we waited we had a nice time visiting with the other families and sharing stories.
We have experienced quite a few firsts while we've been here. Now I can add going into an American Embassy overseas and meeting a US Ambassador to the list!
Now we're back at the apartment and getting ready for our trip in the morning.
We had a bit of dinner...
|Who needs toys? Empty bottles make great musical instruments!|
|Yoga, anyone? Doing a few exercises before I go to sleep.|
Please pray that our trip will be swift, easy, boring and uneventful. I like boring!
Dasvidanya! (Good bye for now!)
Niko is coming to get us at 4am to take us to the airport. Off to finish packing! Our next report will be from the other side of the globe!
