Yes Virginia! We’ve Got a Court Date!

Ok, so that title may have been a bit of a stretch, however… it feels like Christmas in March!  For those of you I am not connected to on Facebook, this news is a day old.  Regardless… WE’VE GOT A COURT DATE!  (And by we, I really mean me…)

I am super excited.  I’d likely be more excited, but this crud I’ve caught (oh yeah, I am sick!) is really being a pain!  I guess better now than in two weeks… since that’s when I’ll be leaving!  Yup!  It’s fast.

Here’s the itinerary so far…

4/11 – Leave DTW

4/12 – Arrive St. Petersburg (via Paris)

4/13 – Visit with Baby Soup

4/14 – COURT

4/15 – Home!

I’ll go BACK again (yes, one last time) 10 days later to pick him up!  Then, this hand will be home for good!

(And I’ll be able to show you the rest of him!  WOOT!)

Great news! I followed your 1st adoption journey. How exciting. Would it be possible to email you? I too am a single mom to my son adopted from Russia in 2006. I too decided to make this 2nd journey as well. I am headed to St. Pete's to meet my son as soon as I get my travel dates. I am hopeful to confirm them this week. Seems like we have lots in common and you might be able to answer some questions and calm my nerves.
