On our way to Russia, yes really!

Ok, that was a little quicker than expected!

Got a phone call on Monday night from our agency in Russia telling us that they had a referral for us in Moscow and could we make it out next Wednesday.  Once the initial shock wore off we very quickly agreed and have spent the last couple of days frantically trying to get visa's, flights and hotel accommodation, etc organised.  Few issues with our visas but I think everything should sorted out now.

Leah is incredibly excited, firstly because we are going out to Russia to start the process of bringing home her new wee brother and also the fact that she will spending the 8 days we are away staying with both sets of Grandparents, Brooke and Molly's house and Charlie and Olivia's house and being spoiled rotten!

So... heading out to Moscow on Wednesday to meet our son for the first time, we'll keep you posted!!

Keep praying!

Philip, Amanda and Leah
