The judge granted our adoption today! We weren't really concerned, but it is wonderful to have the court hearing behind us. I know that everybody wants details and photos, but we are exhausted. We have to pack since we leave Kostanai tomorrow morning to fly to Almaty for paperwork and we fly home on Sunday. If we can manage to get all of the paperwork done tomorrow by 4pm, we will try to fly home on Friday. There are no flights out on Saturday for some reason.
I promise that I will post lots more information and photos either from Almaty or when we get home.
Well, it finally got cold. In fact, today was stupid cold. When we woke up, it was -25 C, which translates to about -12 F! The high was -12 C, which is about 10F! This, we decided, was stupid cold.
Again, we want to thank everybody for their years of love and support. We know that it will continue, especially once Adam Garrett Belyeu comes home in February.
For now, I will say dosvidanya (see you later) and tomorrow morning we will say paka (bye bye) to Kostanai. This city and country has given us the greated gift of our lives ... Adam.
