I don't think I have mentioned that we have court tomorrow and again on Thursday. I guess the judge is busy on Thursday so we have a preliminary hearing tomorrow to probably go over all the paperwork and then hopefully Thursday will be a quick decision. Please pray that all goes well with the judge and that he sees us fit to raise these four children. The two court appointments is not the norm and so we aren't exactly sure what to expect.
Also, several people are asking here and in email about the language. The kids are picking things up in English every day. We are picking up a tiny bit of Russian as well. We get along just fine with the kids. We all use charades and pointing to communicate. Alina and I have even started drawing pictures when nothing else worked. For the most part we are communicating just fine. It is more difficult with adults. :)
