Waiting and Hoping

We have had some correspondence with our agency this week. Our Kaliningrad Agency Representative met with the judge in Kaliningrad on Monday. The judge requested a few additional documents and mentioned the possibility of a June 18th court date. So…we have been hustling to get the documents we need and Amanda will be making the all too familiar trip to Springfield tomorrow for apostilling. Our hope and prayer is that after those documents reach Kaliningrad next week, that the judge will in fact give us the June 18th court date. We are not for sure on the details, but that would put us back in Russia around the 12th of June for 1 to 1 1/2 weeks and then again for 1 to 1 1/2 weeks in late July to bring the girls home. We would appreciate your prayers regarding court. We miss our daughters so much and hope to be with them as soon as possible.

During our time in Kaliningrad, we stayed at the Moscow Hotel. Here are a few pictures of the lobby (I need to get outside pics and our room next time). I also included a few pictures from around Kaliningrad. We didn’t do that well this past trip in capturing the city. Hopefully, we will get more pictures next time.

  1. Love the pictures of you and the girls! You have already changed those little lives in a huge way. I’m completely amazed by God’s creativity in bringing families together. Praying…..

  2. Hi Brett and Amanda,
    Praying this evening for documents to wing their way to the judge and for him to move swiftly to bring your family together. Praying tonight that the girls have sweet dreams of the family you will soon be. Praying that you both have peaceful sleep and continued faith. You are an amazing and inspiring family. Looking forward to meeting your beautiful daughters.
