a little bit closer

We got some more things checked off our list, and that felt good. Yesterday, we finished buying gifts for the caregivers. We decided to do treat bags with regional food items. We also got some treats for Irina. Then we went to Radio Shack and bought a 25 foot network cable. This will give us more choices of where to sit in the apartment while we're on the internet!

Last night, we had dinner with R's mom, and she gave us the cutest ABC bedtime book for Eli. It has wonderful illustrations, and I can't wait to read it to him!

Today, I finished our taxes. I had really been putting it off. I was worried that we would owe, and our budget is already stretched to the absolute limit. We'll be getting a refund! God continues to take care of us, and we are so grateful.

We are really missing our little guy. After reading there has been chicken pox in one of the other orphanages, we hope he is healthy. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

I hope your little guy is healthy also. Your mom sounds ready to spoil Eli and that's wonderful. It won't be long until you are back!

Sounds like you are checking lots off of that list! :-) I just realized that we won't have this years taxes done by the time we wind up having court (we always file an extension b/c of Keith's company). I hope that won't be a problem! You guys are in our prayers!

Hi Ana,
My husband, Kevin and I are adopting from the Moscow Region, too! Congratulations that you have your court date! It has helped for me to follow the blogs and learn more about the adoption process and the Regions. Please feel free to email me at if you would like to follow our journey, as well. Best Wishes!

We will keep your little guy in our prayers. I know the sooner you get back and have him in your arms the better, right? I got our taxes done just before our trip, anything non adoption related seems like such a chore, but sounds like you are ready! Hope the days go by fast.
