Tuesday Feb 23rd.

There isn’t much to post at this point. Cindy’s clearance has been at the SDA for quite some time now and mine is???? Apparently the US government is much more efficient than the Canadian government.

I talked with Vitaly yesterday and he is concerned about changing the court date once again. This will be the second time he has had to change the court date (our latest appointment was for Feb 26th which we cannot make now). I asked him not to reschedule an appointment for now. Hopefully it will not be a problem to schedule a new court date once my clearance arrives.

I also voiced my concern about how Ruslan may be dealing with the delays. Vitaly said he had a conversation with Ruslan and he is fine with everything. It’s like our boy is with other people and we have no real way to communicate with him.

All this time back at home has been great to get things back in order. Between taxes and work there has been no time to do much. I for one haven’t had a chance to notice that we no longer have cable at home! Hopefully Ruslan feels the same way ;-). Voss sure has done a great job finding others things to occupy his time. Not that he was a couch potato but now he plays with his toys and acts like Peter Pan far more.

On another note, Voss is back to his self again! Between the uncertainty of our situation, deviation from his regular schedule, and spending all that time non-stop with his parents, he really wasn’t acting like himself. It’s amazing how sweet he is now that we have been back and settled for a month! He’s been an angel lately.

This morning Voss woke up with me before 6. We had breakfast together. He asked me why I was up so early. I told him that I am busy at work. He asked if I was working on the adoption to bring Ruslan home. Cute!
