Today was our visit to the American Embassy:

Today we went to the American Embassy to complete and get a huge stack of paperwork including travel visas for the boys (they are only Russian citizens at this time). The process there was quite simple and we got to spend time with four other couples there at the embassy all taking kids back to the USA. We had a waiting room overflowing with energy from all these Russian children running around, staring at each other and playing with each other. Everywhere we go people compliment us on the lovely, cute, adorable boys we are adopting. (if they only knew half of the madness involved...) Tomorrow we go to the Russian Consulate to do a final piece of paperwork and then we head on home.
The boys are settling into their routines somewhat already, and lots of things seem to go easier but then... then the next day they awake only to have forgotten all the progress that had been made and it seems we are starting over from scratch again.
