Arrived Safely

Good morning friends! It is after 5pm here in Kiev....while you have been sleeping...we have been sightseeing in Kiev with our translator/facilitator, Sasha. Our flight was delayed in NYC for an hour and a half...but we finally made it. We were ushered right through customs and taken directly to our translator.

We are going to try to recover from lack of sleep tonight...and we will drive to Zaporozhye tomorrow. This is a 6 hour drive. We will leave early in the morning(Sunday).

We know there are many of you reading this blog that are interested in adopting from Ukraine. Please, if you have any questions about any of the need to email us directly. We will answer your emails as fast as we can. We want to make sure that everyone understands that ALL these children that we will blog about are ready and waiting to be adopted.

Please keep us in your prayers....We are trusting God for some big things!

Aimee and Jami

We hope you enjoy the pictures from our short time in Kiev.

Good night.
