Our First Trip to Russia - Oct. 27, 2008

Oct. 27, 2008

This trip has been 4 months ago, but I'll just do a recap of it, to start off this blog. On our first trip to Russia we met and accepted Drew.

The trip was 7 days long:

Oct. 27, Monday - Minneapolis to Atlanta.
Oct. 28, Tuesday - arrived in Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow.
Oct. 28, Tuesday - 2 hour drive from Sheremetyevo to Domodedovo Airport (also Moscow)
Oct. 29, Wed. - landed in Novokuznetsk, Siberia.
Oct. 29, Wed. - visited the babyhouse for 2 hours.
Oct. 30, Thurs. - again visited at babyhouse for 2 hours.
Oct. 31, Fri. - left Novokuznetsk for Domodedovo airport.
Nov. 1, Sat. - toured Moscow.
Nov. 2, Sun. - came home.

Now we've been home for 4 months and have been waiting for a court date for Drew. However during those 4 months we received a referral for another boy, Demitri, 14 months old, and still needed to travel to meet him. We got word from our agency that they got word from Russia that the DOE (Dept. of Education) decided to put the two boys together as one adoption. Now we are not waiting for court anymore, but waiting for a first trip.
