The Abraham Family’s Journey to Russia to Bring Home Their Daughter

November 12, 2008

We have a court date!

Our court date is set for December 2nd!

As much as I can't stand to wait a minute longer to get to Russia, this date actually comes as a relief for us. We really do need those extra days to finish getting everything in order. Plus, you can imagine what the plane tickets were going for with 3 days notice. Oy, they were outrageous! The only bad news is that this delay reeks havoc on my SIL's plans. I'm praying that Cori and Rachel will still be able to join us. We've been so excited about planning our trip and all the things we want to do in Moscow with them that it will be sad if they can't come.

There is still one last detail in our itinerary to be resolved before we can purchase our plane tickets. Hopefully, we'll know by tomorrow. So we are still hanging on and waiting for this emotional roller coaster to top a few more hills before heading back to the station.

Thank you for all your kind comments and for supporting us and lifting us up with prayers! Please keep them coming!
