Brief Update

Today we assembled our daughter's crib! Her room is nearly finished . . . all that's needed is her!

If you are wondering where we are in this process, we are now simply waiting to be notified of our court date, which we anticipate to be within the next 4-6 weeks (hopefully). Once we receive a court date, we will have approx. 1 week to make our travel arrangements to go back to Russia. We will stay in St. Petersburg for a few days (to attend court and of course, visit with our little girl), and then return home for about one week (there is a full 2 week wait-period after court before the adoption is considered "final"). We then go back to Russia, pick up our daughter (hurray!)and the 3 of us will go to Moscow, where we will remain for about one week (doing adoption related business). After that, we can finally come HOME and begin our lives as a family of three!

Fingers crossed that our court date comes SOON!

Happy New Year,


  1. Praying that you hear good news soon!

  2. Just found your blog, we brought our daughter home from St. Petersburg in May. We love St. Petersburg. Hope you hear something really soon.

  3. I LOVE your daughters room! It is beyond beautiful. Stuff for boys rooms is just not as cute. I love the tree on her wall and the pink/green combo.

    I think we are about at the same point in our adoptions...waiting for court. Best of luck!

  4. Isn't it fun decorating!! Looks wondedrful. I sure hope you hear about court soon!!!
