Well...we were supposed to have court tomorrow but now it is postponed until Friday. I just called our facilitator to confirm the time for tomorrow morning and she said the adoption form is at the Adoption Agency in Kiev but it wasn't signed in time for tomorrow. I guess I am lucky I called her. She has assured us that it will be signed tomorrow and then delivered here for our court date on Friday. Here's hoping...because if it isn't we will hit the holiday that starts Saturday and we will be screwed. While we have been fortunate for the most part with the process this is the second time in the last little while a glitch in processing paper work has held us up. About a week and a half ago something wasn't signed or processed when it was supposed to be and we were set back a couple of days. Quite frustrating, but like so many things over here, totally out of our control. All we can do is put our trust in the people who are supposed to be helping us and hope that they deliver.
While this little development puts a small damper on the day, and our plans for tomorrow, we won't let it get us down. We had a nice time today visiting with Alexandra. She sat and watched about 20 minutes of videos of herself that we have recorded since we arrived. She was quite entertained. After lunch, Candace and I went shopping again and picked up some more clothes for Alexandra. We are going to have to buy a new suitcase if we get anything else over here. Its hard to resist some of the purchases because clothes are so cheap.
Oh yeah...when we got back from our evening visit, the lady who supervises /guards our floor came up and told us there had been a problem in our room. Apparently the shower kicked in during our absence and created a bit of a mess in the bathroom. The problem was a direct result of the unusual frequency by which our plumbing actually works. Usually, the water is turned off from about 10:00 am - 2:00 pm for some reason which I have yet to discover. Today it was still off when we departed at 4:40 pm and I thought the taps were turned off. I was wrong. The lady was very nice and she cleaned everything up for us.
