First things first OUR COURT DATE IS TOMORROW!!!! Marina called us this afternoon and said that by a miracle our court will be tomorrow. She said somehow our interpol clearance was lost so Serge had to go to the office in Kiev to try and get them to get a new one. They had told Marina that we wouldn't be able to have it tomorrow since they didn't have our interpol but thankful he was able to get them to take care of it right then so that we can have court tomorrow. She said that it was a huge blessing and miracle that court will be tomorrow so we are so thankful for that and for all your prayers.
Court will be in the morning at 11am. Myla will be coming with us because our court date was sooner than we thought so my friend that lives in Ukraine won't be able to make it to us... plus it was such short notice since we just found out for sure this evening. So we will be taking Myla to court with us. I already have her backpack packed with toys, snacks, suckers, and will bring her some milk... hopefully she will be on her best behavior!
Our afternoon visit with Mina was awesome!! She was such a little ham today and totally livened up. She was sticking her tongue out at her dad, making faces, talking up a storm, said mama several times, and even laughed uncontrollably. It was so precious and wonderful! The best part is we have videos to share.
These are my most favorite treasured videos yet!! Enjoy!
Sorry I moved the camera when I leaned in to kiss Mina. She still made adorable faces at her daddy though.
This is the difference in size between an American 26 month old and an orphan 23 month old.
Myla was walking around this flower bed area outside of the orphanage when several kids ran up to the window and moved the curtains out of the way and started banging on the glass waiving, blowing kisses, and calling Jim papa and Dadda... So sad! It breaks my heart! Oh I want to bring them all home with me to love on them. They kept waiving at us and blowing kisses till we walked away.
It was raining today when we were leaving the orphanage and Myla was walking up the steps outside and slipped and fell into a thorny rose bush... and well the bush won. She has scrapes all over her hands, wrist, arms, legs, and her cheek. She about made her momma cry along with her. I felt so bad for my girl. We neosporin and bandaged her all up. Of course the day before court...
