according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

Okay. I'm calming down, now. This has been quite an afternoon. First, I had to go to Nikolai's IEP meeting, and those are always interesting. Then, I had to take Daisy to the vet as she is still not walking on that leg very well (he said that she is not using it enough and by holding it up so much it is getting tight - we need to make her USE the leg and get it going again; it has NOT come out of place, thank goodness).

Then! I get home from the vet and our all-important Immigration approval document has arrived!!! I have heard such horror stories lately about the USCIS and how they have given people a rough time, it has taken months and months, people have to get their Congressmen involved, etc. and ours took 10 painless days!!

What this MEANS, though, is that suddenly, we are very behind in our documents!! I thought we'd have several weeks to get everything all put together while we waited for this document, but it's HERE, and now we need to MOVE!! There are several loose ends that we can tie up if we move hard, and Monday at the earliest, we will be able to send away to Tallahassee for apostilles for everything, then when those are on, we will send the whole sh-bang to Ukraine!!

My head is spinning. There is so much to do. So many tiny details that mean so much. Ukraine is VERY picky about their documents and I am so worried that a "t" might not be crossed somewhere. Fortunately, our "coordinator", Meredith, is right here in Titusville, and instead of having to scan everything for her to check, we can just swing by her house and let her take a look.

Time to breathe deeply. Keep a clear head. This is not an emergency.
