Hang on little Sofia, your mama and papa are coming soon!
We just booked our flight back to Ukraine. We leave Sunday, June 6th and we hope to return on Thursday, June 17th...if not sooner...with Sofia!
It takes this amount of time to process the new birth certificate, passport, medical appointment and visa in order to bring Sofia home.
I already have two PACKED suitcases full of donated clothing for the orphanage...THANK YOU!
It's been a busy week here at home with the boys and add on top of that a cold for me and pink eye for Hector...at least we got sick here at home. Last week I couldn't get enough sleep, I was exhausted and still feel like I need to catch up. That trip home really wiped us out, emotionally and physically. We've been loving on our boys and it's been wonderful to be back to our normal, busy routine. I have such a new found appreciation for everything that we have here at home. We have so much to be grateful for here in the States.
It's strange to think our daughter is half way across the world. I hope she's happy. I hope she's healthy and doesn't feel lost without us visiting her. We can't wait to get her home. The first thing Mateo asked us when we got home was "Where is Sofia?" It's so hard to explain to them why she couldn't come home the first trip and why we will have to leave AGAIN but we know that in the end everything will work out and then they won't know life without Sofia.
