Court was...interesting. The courtroom was about the size of a nice walk-in closet! There was the judge, two witnesses, the orphanage attorney, the prosecutor, a court reporter, the social worker, our facilitator and the two of us stuffed inside. We had to stand up to open the door! Instead of the judge stepping out to deliberate, we had to leave. She couldn't get to the door anyway.
Apparently she like the answers to the questions that were asked because she made a decision in our favor! It also could have been that she was very busy. The hallway was full of people waiting for her attention as well. She spoke so fast that our facilitator could not translate for us!
You may wonder about the boys' names. All of our children have two middle names and these boys were not supposed to be an exception, but the paperwork here would have been a mess had we insisted. We can always change them officially when we get home, if we feel the need. They are, Zhen Harrison Ezekiel Nance and Theodore Honor Alexsey Nance.
I just said good-bye to my husband. He is flying to Kyiv tonight and leaving again early in the morning for the good old U.S.A. Wesley, you had better have a burrito waiting for him!
Being alone has never really bothered me. But, then again, I've never been quite this alone before. I wonder how I will like it?
