Verbal referral at last!!

Yeah!!! Today Toni from Abby's birth-country emailed saying we have received verbal referral from the Ministry of Justice there. Exact travel dates are yet to be confirmed but we are possibly looking at mid-February!! I am so excited as you can probably tell. This first trip lasts approximately a week and involves us visiting with our new daughter daily for 5 days and then having to leave her behind for a few months until the legal processes necessary both here in the U.S. and there in Eastern Europe are complete.

We're coming Abby!!


  1. Oh, Joy, that is wonderful! Can't wait to see pics of your first meeting together!

  2. Yay!! This is wonderful news.
