Our Last Visit-The Girl in the White Hat

Here are some shots of Nadia from our last visit earlier this evening.  I just spoke with Marina and it looks like court will be at 10am and then she and I will run around most of the day gathering documents, etc.  We will call Jim and the boys to meet us at the orphanage when we finally get to pick up Nadia!!!


Last good-bye hugs from her Mom and brothers.

Whispering a promise that we'll be back to get her tomorrow and take her with us forever!


                             Next post will be the long-anticipated "Gotcha" post.  Can't wait!!!

  6. I'm not sure if you remember me, but I'm Christa Graham and you were the nursery dir. for BSF many years ago and I was one of your nursery workers (along with Patrice and Sharon). Oddly enough, I saw your picture on Adeye's blog (found her blog recently) and thought you looked familiar.

    Anyway, we adopted a 12 year old girl from Ukraine last summer. Oddly enough, from the Zap. region, but not Zap. Kristina is from Berdyansk, south of Zap. and on the Sea of Azov. Our process was a very difficult one, and took us almost 4 years to get her home. We spent 2 months there last summer finishing the process while I was in the last trimester.

    Reading your blog is a pleasure. I am so happy that you will get to take Nadia with you after court tomorrow. Kristina was never allowed to leave the orphanage with us (except to go to the home of the orphanage doctor).

    So glad to have found you again. Blessings to your entire family.

    Christa

  8. Yay!!!! I absolutely ADORE the last picture of you two. I also love the ones with the boys too, just something magical about the last one though. Miss you terribly, excited that you will be able to officially leave with Nadia soon. If all goes smoothly tomorrow, when does that put you back in the states? I miss you!

  14. Best of luck with court tomorrow! We adopted Dylan (Vova - age 5) from this orphanage in December last year. The hours following court where crazy - but Morena is wonderful and can pull off amazing things! We were able to finish up the same day and boarded the train at 7:30 pm that night after picking him up! Tell Morena the Bergmanns say hello and that Dylan finally got to meet Mickey Mouse earlier this month! We will be hoping everything works out and can get finished quickly for you, as it did for us!

  21. Having the blessing of FINALLY having time to go back and read and look at your posts, one thing is for sure: Nadia looks SO MUCH HAPPIER now than before. She looks great in these shots, but I can tell that SHE KNOWS NOW that she is with her family!
