Friday Court

We went in to court hoping to adopt Ruslan. We came out with a girl as well:


Just Kidding, this was Yanna jumping into our first family shot together.
Ruslan was happy with the outcome:


We went out to celebrate afterwards at a fancy Melitopol Restaurant ;-):



Then back at the orphanage Valerie brought us in to celebrate some more:



These started full. The one on the right is the tincture disguised in the cognac bottle:



That's when things started getting blurry. I am a little foggy on what happened after that:



It's now 8:30 sat night, it's quiet and I am turning in. Cindy's train left just over an hour ago.

You are too funny (in the face of all that has happened - by the way, stop drinking that stuff, it'll rot your guts out). Ruslan looks very happy. The director looks...happy. All in all, though, how wonderful. Jefferson Hunt

Love the photos....who are your friends at dinner? Ruslan does look like you Zenon! Can't wait to meet him and I am sure you are looking forward to stepping foot on American soil soon. Enjoy the time with your son.
