The countdown begins...

So, as you all should know, on October 14th we received word that there is a little girl waiting for us to meet in Russia. All we know about her is that she is somewhere between 10 months and 2 years old. We can't wait to meet her! We are leaving on Saturday, November 8th and flying direct from Chicago to Moscow. I am so thankful we have a direct flight. We will arrive in Moscow on Sunday around noon, Moscow time. After we make it through customs, we should have someone there to take us to our apartment. Yes, we will be staying in an apartment because it is a lot cheaper to rent an apartment than it is to stay in a hotel. Hotels can be $400 a night and more. Moscow is the most expensive city in the world. We will spend Monday getting our barrings and hopefully doing some sightseeing. We are staying in a very touristy area, so we should be able to walk to anywhere we want to go. Tuesday, November 11th, is the BIG day. We get to meet our second daughter!! After that, I am not as clear how our days will go, but I think we should be able to see our girl at least once a day. We leave on Friday, November 14th, to come home.

I will try to post more about what has been going on in the next couple of days. I have been extremely busy getting ready for our trip, trying to get my Body Step certification done before I leave and planning a birthday party for my sweet Kiara.

So, the countdown begins...9 days until we leave for Russia and 12 days until we meet our girl!!
