Day 11

Can you believe that it is day 11 already? I can't and I am here living it. You live for the next day to happen. I go to bed every night praying that God makes the next day come faster.
Today we tried the bus again and let me just tell you SUCCESS!!! Yippie! We got on in the right spot, got off in the right spot, we are very proud of ourselves. I did take a nose dive this afternoon after we left the orphanage. I slipped on some ice, and went down. It hurt like crazy, but as I was telling my friend Jen tonight my ego hurt worse. But oh well you get up, you dust yourself off, and you keep going. :)
Today's visit was great. Andrew went and picked Johannah up from her groupa, and at first the workers wasn't going to let her go with him because they thought he was our friend Christiana's husband, and Johannah began to cry and he finally was able to get them to understand that he was there for her. She knew he was her papa and wanted to go with him. Bless her heart. I went and picked up Ellee today, and she was so excited to see me. While they were getting her dressed though she kept asking for papa, and the caretakers were telling her heres momma, but she continued to ask for her daddy. I think we have a couple of daddy's girls. :) I am going to sound a little selfish and coincided but that's ok (lol) but I love seeing the love my girls have for me and I know I have that same kind of love for them. They are amazing, and I am beyond blessed to be able to call them my daughters and be their mommy.
Thank you to everyone who prayed for us to have a quick court date, we got news today our court is Friday at 9 a.m. Yippie!!! :) Andrew will be leaving this weekend to head back to Kiev and then on Tuesday be headed home. I already miss him, we haven't been away from each other for more than a couple of days at a time. So please pray for traveling mercies for him, and that flights aren't delayed and he has smooth flights home.
Now on to what you have all been waiting for...
