We had a busy time in the capitol city - it's been an adventure here for sure so far! We had a great time and the Lord has been gracious to us even with a couple of small hiccups. I'll post about our time there later along with some photos.
We are now in Darya's city. We took the overnight train and are now at our apartment. Our translator will be here in about 20 minutes to pick us up and in just a matter of a couple of hours we'll be meeting Darya!!!! You will probably all still be sleeping :-) We just found out that she is in one of the "easier" orphanage to adopt from here, as another one in this city is much more difficult. We thank God for that and are praying for a quick and smooth process. This is one exciting adventure!
p.s. for those of you who have asked, it is much colder here than we expected. I'm glad I brought a jacket. I brought a scarf that doubled as a head covering when we visited some orthodox churches (just a light weight gauze type one). Oh, also pack light on the toiletries as everything is readily available here!
Next blog will be the "big one"!!
