We have a VISA!!!!

The documents we needed arrived this afternoon.  Vanya picked them up and brought them to me then we went to the embassy.  The consular was very happy to see that we had gotten all of the documents today, but not nearly as happy as I was to hear her say that we had everything we needed for the Visa.  It only took a few minutes for me to sign in a couple of places and then we waited for the Visa to be printed.  It is a great feeling to finally have it all done.

My travel agent was able to schedule us some reasonable tickets for Tuesday.  The weekend tickets were simply too expensive.  The increase in price to switch to the weekend would have been between $3,000 and $5,000.  I just can't justify adding that much expense to the tickets just to come home on the weekend instead of Tuesday.  

Misha was very excited to have the Visa in his passport today.  I was so excited that everything was in order that I almost cried tears of joy so Misha thought I was upset because we weren't getting the Visa.  I had to explain to him that yes, we were getting the Visa today and we will be going home on Tuesday.  He was very relieved.

Thank you for all of your prayers.  I know that your prayers were heard and were answered.  Even in the delays God comforts and blesses those who turn to him.   He has blessed me more than I could ever deserve.  I will be looking forward to seeing the blessings he gave me in friends and family when I get home Tuesday night.  See you soon.

  1. Hi there -
    I just found you site while cruising around for current UA adoption blogs. My husband and I just began the process of (hopefully) adopting two girls from UA. Thanks for sharing your story - it has been so helpful to us!
    Glad to hear you got the visa and will be home soon. Safe travels!
