Had court today. Everything went very well. We were worried at first because the social services director was really late and it was getting close to closing time. But she made it with about 30 minutes to spare and the judge started us up. He hurried everybody along asked a couple of question and said you are approved. So Sasha is OURS. I leave Monday back to the states and Caroline will remain until about the 10th of May to finish up the immigration work. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes

Hi friends. I know it has been a while but we really haven't had anything new since the last court date. We have been sitting around and visiting Sasha everyday. Our next and hopefully final court date is on the 19th. Then I will go home and Caroline will stay to finish up the process. I will flood the internet with the videoas and pictures when I get home, our connection here is not great and videos won't load so I have just been saving them and will load them ASAP. Sasha is doing well and she is excited to see us everyday. She still introduces us to everybody as her Mama and Papa. We have bought here alot of new clothes and some nice dolls for the trip. She is a wonderful little girl. The orphanage she is at is very good and they pay alot of attention to the children. There are several children here who need adopting so if you are in the state of mind to do so it is very rewarding.

We had our first court date yesterday. Things went well. The judge seemed nice and supportive. He was concerned that we get all the paperwork correct so he can proceed. We scheduled the second court date for Thursday the 19th. We should have all the Ukrainian documentation done by then. I will then go back to the states and leave Caroline here to complete the process.
