Arrived Safe & Sound

We are in Kaliningrad. Overall, it has been a good trip except our stroller didn’t make it (we filled out a lost baggage claim and hope it will arrive tomorrow) and when we got to Kaliningrad some things were not as we expected, but we are again reminded that we have to be flexible and this week is just about getting the girls home. Our interpreter, Natasha, is on vacation so we will have another interpreter during our time in Kaliningrad. We are bummed that we will not see Natasha again and also that she will not be with us tomorrow as we pick up the girls. Over our previous three trips, she has done an excellent job interpreting and interacting with the girls. Oh well, we will have to get used to communicating with the girls without her.

Anyway, after a hotel room change and quick trip to the market, we are eating a light dinner and hoping to get some good sleep this evening!

Tomorrow is THE day! We are so excited and nervous! We look forward to sharing names and pictures of the girls soon!
