We went to bed fairly early last night and Brandon was thrilled to have found a soccer only channel. Even though it was only in Ukrainian, Brandon enjoyed watching his favorite sport. We woke this morning and I made a hearty breakfast of bacon wrapped sausage, eggs, toast, and juice. Brandon is going to want me to cook like this all the time. J
We were picked up by our driver at 10am and driven to downtown Kiev for our SDA
appointment which was at 11am. The appointment
was pretty fast, we were asked about our family and how we found out about
Vitaliy. Brandon gave a 2 minute
answer, which was translator into about 2 sentences. LOL It seemed to suffice. We were told a few interesting things about
Vitaliy’s family but we will find out more at the courts in Simferopol next
We then were dropped off at a mall with another couple here adopting. We got some Ukrainian Mall food and then
walked to an outdoor market. It was
interesting, as our group was approached by a woman selling herself. We are so thankful that we can adopt our
children so that they don’t have to resort to this way of living.
We found our way back to our apartment from the market and are now cozy
inside. Tomorrow we have Thanksgiving
lunch at TGIF’s and then go and pick up our referral for adopting. We will make a copy to bring back to the base
to enroll Vitaliy into DEERS and Sasha will take the original to the region of
Crimea where we will be next week.
Successful Day 2.
