We made it to Kiev safely today and are getting settled in our apartment. Another family who is also here adopting (they are adopting a brother and sister) graciously stopped by and give us some tips and took us to a couple of grocery stores so we could get some food staples. Tomorrow is Victory day in the Ukraine (celebrating their victory in WWII) and we understand it is a big event. It will be interesting to see how the locals observe this holiday on our first full day in Kiev.
Thanks to everyone for your positive thoughts and prayers. We will continue to need them!
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms.
