Finally !! Court Date !!

Waiting NINE months since trip 1 to Russia for a court date yesterday we FINALLY found out we have 2 court dates for our little ones. Long story I can not go into here but, we have to be in Russia in 7 days !! Our first court date is Oct 29th and the second within a week.Due to our complicated case I may need to stay the entire time which would be over a month in Russia.I am somewhat paniced over this since running a household of presently seven is a full time job and my mommy heart is missing my kids already.I have a wonderful brother and famiy who is taking over but, it is a HUGE task to take over a large family like ours . I was planning on coming home for the 10 day waiting period and then going back. We are trying to figure it all out here in the next day or so since we have to leave by the end of the week!!! We have our visa but, our bloodwork is still in the works because they told us it is only good for 30 days now.We have been waiting waiting waiting and now we are rushing like crazy people trying to get it all together in less then a week !

We still do not know whether one of our little ones will be cleared to come home with us but, we hope and pray what ever the outcome that our hearts will be at peace and know we have come and have done all we can.

YAY Corrinne! I couldn't click your blog fast enough when I seen you had a new post! I will pray for you, your family, and your little ones across the globe waiting for you!

I've been in Ukraine now for 3wks today, and I have about another 1.5wks to go. I can spring Alina from the baby house on the 26th prayerfully, if we get all the paperwork done that morning. Then back to Kiev for the Embassy and then HOME! Such a sweet thought!

Praise God!!! It was such happy news at 4:45 this morning :) I am SO very happy for you!!! It has been such a long road for you....I'm so happy for you that it's finally starting to reach the end for you. Hopefully, Lord willing, with two little ones traveling home with you.

Take care on your travels, and if at all possible, keep us posted.

Very happy for you and your family!

In Christ,
Charity

Yay! I'm so very happy for you, Corrine! I've been lurking and following for awhile (don't know if I've ever actually posted a comment or not), but you've been in my thoughts/prayers. I'll keep you there over the next few weeks.

Oh Corinne!!! I hope everything goes great and both those darlings can come home with you. I can only imagine how stressful this all is. At least the VMI is a decent place to stay and the weather should be cold but not bad. Can't wait to hear more. Let me know if I can answer any questions.

Christina said...

So excited for you guys!!!!

Jeanne said...

So very happy for you!! I sincerely hope that court goes smoothly for both children.

Finally!!!! I wish we were going too, but I rejoice in ANY child/children coming home after such ridiculous delays. Praise God, keep praying for us and Charlie.

Congratulations! I know it is crazy, but you'll have that long plane ride to relax. You can do it, it's part of the story! :)

I know you but I sure have enjoyed your blog and journey I love your music. We are starting down this road and I am scared to death. I dont know how God is going to work all this out and I am scared to death if we dont raise the money our boy will be sent back to parish in Russia. LEt me explain we are hosting him thru New Horizons for Children with hopes of adopting him.. God is taking our faith to even a deeper level. I am trying to keep my eyes focused on the thing above.. Lives are at stake here and God is going to have to move in order for any of this to happen come together.. He has told me to commit my ways to him and just trust him.. I Need to trust him. Reading all these post makes me apprehensive but I feel I need to be informed. How did you meet your child? and how did you raise funds if you don't mind me asking?I will lift you and your family up and that this adoption will hurry along and that judge will be nice and not intentionally hold things up. God bless Anne Petitt Ga
