The Pitman's Journey To Russia

Our journey to adopt three beautiful children from Vladivostok, Russia

One month down

And hopefully only one more month to go! We have been so busy getting the paperwork done and getting the rooms ready. Thank God for Marilyn at CHI. She has been so wonderful in helping us get the remaining paperwork done and off to Russia by the 15th of September. Please pray that all this rush will get us back to Russia by October sometime. We both miss the kids tremedously and it is so hard not to be able to ask everyday how they are doing. We are trying to get cards together to send to them with pictures. Our friends Joel & Clarion are on their way home soon with their two boys from Vlad. It was so emotional to see the picture of them as a family and to know that in just a couple of months it will be us taking a picture of our family.

Hi Becky and Eric. We met you at the Vlad Inn in July - - we were just leaving from trip 1 of our second adoption.

Hopefully you will get there soon. We are leaving Vancouver to go back for trip 2 on Sept 15th and will be there for 3 or 4 weeks, assuming everything works out. Everything was done in a big rush to get us back to Vlad so soon.

We have enjoyed reading your blog and would really enjoy meeting your new kids. We will have our 3 years old (from our first adoption) with us and he would love to have some playmates at the hotel.

Just stopped by to say that I hope you hear news of a return trip (court date) very soon. It is very hard leaving those little ones behind.
