We are here! The drive was LONG. and BUMPY. and FAST. But, we are here, safe and sound. :) We knew we were no longer in Kiev when we saw goats and cows grazing on the edge of the highway. We stoppped halfway and ate at McDonalds. Yum-yum. We had fried shrimp, a "Coke Light" (no ice), and of course, fries.

Tomorrow's plan is to arrive at orphanage early... We are looking forward to what God is going to do!

We will post again tomorrow with lots of pictures.
