Quick update

Hey everyone!

It's currently 5:30pm on Thursday, August 13 in Novokuznetsk, Russia. We had our court date this morning. While the judge was cool, and Steve did well answering questions, the 10 day waiting period was not waived. In spite of that, the boys are officially ours! Sam and Rowan are officially Myers'. I don't think it has really sunk in yet, and they must remain in the orphanage until the 24th.

We've already had some great travel adventures too! I can't wait to tell you all about the stole purse, the day at the police station, the speeding ticket, and the near fatal car ride...ok, Steve will have to tell about the near fatal car ride. Again, I was oblivious as that happened.

We will update much more once we get to Moscow.

I'm just meeting you at the end of one journey... but at the beginning of another VERY EXCITING JOURNEY!

I'm praying for your 10 days there and a safe trip home... and that the boys will acclimate to life outside the orphanage VERY EASILY!
