We have an emergency at home and Brian needs to get home ASAP! He called the US embassy first thing this morning, which we knew was closed for Christmas Eve. Thankfully, he was able to get a hold of someone and explain our situation. They were kind enough to call the person in charge of our visa and that person was thoughtful enough to come in so Brian could sign the documents needed for him to be able to leave. Thank you Lord! They were appreciative that we had our forms already printed out and completed. Brian was able to go straight to the airport and catch his flight to London. Whether he could get a flight home from there was yet to be determined.
Alyona and I decided to break out a new toy we had found for her. Her caretaker at the baby home had told us about it and we were happy we were able to find one. We were both learning our Ukrainian letters and words.
Another first for Aly. We watched Winnie the Pooh together before bedtime. I forgot how much I love that Bear of Very Little Brain.
Brian just called me from London to say he was finally able to get a flight home on Christmas Day!
Your prayers for Brian's back and my daughter, Kira would be greatly appreciated.
