It is official, we are the parents of Vosya! We had court yesterday to explain why we wanted to adopt and describe how we will care for Vos. The judges really liked Zenon because they said he was really confident yet personable. He was so cute when he was talking about Vos. Thank God he was doing all the talking! They asked me one question and I got about seven words out before I started to cry. I don't know if it is normal, but the representative from the orphanage was also crying. Maybe it was Zenon's speech.

So, we have to wait 10 days then we go back to court and we are able to take him with us. He is definately sick of us visiting the hospital and leaving him there. The last time we visited, he knew we were getting readt to go, so he decided to take control of the situation once and for all....We were starting to leave the hospital, saying goodbye to the nurse and getting instructions on what to bring next time, and Vos walked right out the door of the hospital to leave by himself. He was done there, no crying this time just a calm , "I am going with Mommy now."

We are all done with this trip and want to go home. We are completely sick of Ukranian food! And dill!

Vos loves the sand box so I can't wait for him to see the giant one we have in Encinitas!

Congrats! Don't worry Cindy, I'm sure Zenon got all of his strength for his speech from you. Can't wait to meet the lil guy. First phrase he needs to learn..."let's do it."

CONGRATULATIONS; Your family is complete (for the time being) How thrilled you both must be, and how a miracle brought you to Vosya. He is one lucky little guy to have found you half way around the world. Now the fun begins,(maybe more envelopes will speed up the process) and you can return to US to start the life of a real family. Again, Congratulations. Joanne
