Day 17 (2 days down 8 to go)

We have made it through 2 days of the 10 day wait only 8 more to go...

Today was another great visit. The only difference was today was the first visit with just momma. Andrew did make it to Kiev and he called me while I was waiting at the bus stop. Niko gave him a phone which was great. So I told him to call me in about 30 minutes and I would let him talk to the girls. Once I got to the orphanage I got Johannah first and she was so excited to see me, but she was looking behind me for her daddy. She kept saying papa papa, and I explained to her he wasn't there. I then went and got Ellee, and the first thing she said was papa. We went to the playroom and they were looking for him. After about 10 or so minutes Andrew called and I put the phone up to their ear and they just brightened up. I kept switching between the two of them so they could talk to their daddy and everytime I would put the phone up to Ellee's ear Johannah kept pointing at her ear and saying papa. We ALL miss him so much!!!!
In the next couple of days we are going to try to get outside. They are stir crazy and so am I. I have heard other adopting parents say this and now I know what they mean. It is seriously like you are caught in the movie "Groundhog Day" You do the same thing everyday, and there is only so many times you can play with the same toys. They are ready to get out and do something different. So we are hoping it warms up in the next couple of days, because it is like -20 everyday and WINDY!!! The wind is horrible!!! So please pray for warm weather.

So now on to the good stuff....

Beautiful girls! I hope you can get outside soon. That "-20" thing doesn't sound promising though. :(

Glad things are going well. I love the pictures of your girls. Hope it warms up enough to go outside for a bit.

Great pictures today. Thanks!
Can you arrange skype when your husband gets home? I tried when I was at the orphanage, but mine didn't have internet.

Oh Jen I know exactly what you're talking about that there is only so much you can do in that big room or the room next door to it. I remember telling David, " I can't wait to get Madeline home to experience Family life. Hang in there. You'll be boarding the plane home soon. Praying for nice calm weather for you all.
