3 days left to go

It is Saturday evening here in Kyiv. We only have 3 days to go. Early Tuesday morning we finally get to go home!

Yesterday we were not able to get Nina's medical as the place was closed due to Christmas (even though it is a Ukranian clinic) It means that on Monday we have a marathon day getting thigs ready. I think we leave at 7:30 so we can get visa applied for and medical so that we can get that visa later on Monday.

Yesterday was Christmas day, and it did not feel a lot like Christmas, but, our wonderful friends that are here as missionaries invited us over and let me tell you, the food was delicious! They have become dear friends and I think we will always be so thankful to them. They have been wonderful with Nina and Nina adores Kim!

We did spend the morning listening to Christmas songs and dancing around, then we took a short nap and we got to go to our Christmas dinner.

We are counting down the days.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!


  1. Home stretch!! Prayers and Merry Christmas!

  2. the day is almost here!! hugs!

  3. we all love Nina here! Beki *really* would love to hold your little sweetheart...Nina is such a sweetie! you are blessed!

  4. I am so sorry I haven't kept up on your journey but so glad to hear you have a return date in sight. Wow with the time difference you are already about to begin your marathon day. We spent Christmas in Kyiv last year so I do understand how it feels. I imagine the big tree is up again in Independence Square and things are gearing up for New Year's there? I'll try to read back in your blog and get a better idea of how things have gone. I hope things go great for you.

  5. Hi, Ellen.

    You probably don't remember me... My name is Heather, and I roomed with Leah Craven her freshman year at Crown (so right across the hall from you...)

    We're also adopting... We've been in the adoption process for 2 years this January to adopt from Ethiopia. I'm so glad to find another family from Crown that has been touched by the miracle of adoption.

    God bless your family!
