Russia Update

WOW ! It has been a really busy few days! Not sure what time zone my body is on but, we are back in Russia. We left the United States on Saturday morning and flew to Tokyo. We spent the next day exploring Tokyo which was fast but, really fun.Love the efficiency and organization in Japan.We then had a connecting flight from Tokyo to Seoul to Beijing China to Vladivostok. We had to do this route to get to our medicals on Tuesday afternoon.Everything was going really smoothly until the flight crew on a Russian airline informed us we were not going to be able to land in Vladivostok!We had to fly to another city called Khabarovsk an hour flying time north of Vlad due to weather. We landed in Khabarovsk and sat in the plane for an hour or two and then flew back to Vladivostok. We finally arrived at the hotel in Vlad around 1:pm and headed out to do our medicals at 2:30. A bit too close for comfort but, we made it as well as another couple who was also on our flight from Beijing to Vlad and had medicals the same time as us.The medicals were like last time for our other adoption. Very short and a bit humorous. Yesterday and today we went to visit our little ones! Have I ever said how absolutely adorable they are? Little Missy remembered me.She is the sweetest dainty little thing who melts my heart.I can not wait to get her home so we can get her medical treatment started.Little guy has some major cheeks and has a huge personality and looks really great and healthy ! We have been able to go outside on our visits which has made our visits so much nicer and the kids get to feel the sunshine. Every thing is going well.Tuesday the 29th we will head to court to become the parents of two sweet babes whom we will name Analiese and Alexander !
