After a 17 hour train ride on two top bunks with transient roommates throughout the night, 3 flights totalling 23 hours with layovers factored in, we arrived home around midnight last night, exhausted! And I get to do this all over again a week from tomorrow!!! Hopefully I'll be recovered by then. Pretty good timing that we get an extra hour of sleep tonight, except I bet nobody told the 3 year old she should sleep in! LOL.
Oh how happy my heart was to squeeze Zoya! I have a cute video of when we went in to get her out of her bed this morning, but I will post it later on Zoya's blog. She was over the moon excited to see us!
I plan to post more about court, Mila, and our adoption process as soon as I can keep my eyes open to see what letters I'm typing on the screen!
For now, please please, please keep praying for Mila. We have started translating the minimal medical records we have on her and are realizing even more just how fragile she is. Please start praying now for protection through the trip home, especially the flights. Pray for discretion on our part to make a plan of action as to where we will fly into and if we will take her immediately to the hospital or have her come home for a day or two before starting the traumatizing medical stuff. Pray that we will just know what to do each step of the way and that peace and calmness will sweep over Mila and I on the way home! Thank you friends!!
