When the universe has other plans...

 Lunch at our favorite little resturant :) it translates to  "fat hut" oy. Thats borscht , fried potatoes, and perogis filled with cheese. And a beer :)

 Daddy and Giana in the morning before our appointment
 Mama and Daddy :)
After our appointment we walked to the top of the church. The view over looking the city was amazing! The church was built , and rebuilt several times since 1895 due to water damage and war.

Our appointment was not at all what we hoped for. We asked to see the file of a little baby girl we had fallen in love with and believed God and pointed us to. It turned out she was not available for adoption at all :(  They wouldnt show us any other files since our appointment had run so long. We would need to leave and come back in a week. That is impossible at this time. We then we asked to see our Sasha's file and low and behold there was very important papers missing which would make him also unavailable to be adopted :( we were in shock. The papers had been in his file a few weeks ago. Now they would have to be found thru 2 baby houses and an internet. We waited in the office for almost 3 hours hoping to have an answer. The staff promised to work on it for us and try to recreate/find the papers that had gone missing. It took another 3 hours but thankfully they called and it was ready to go. We will be able to adopt our Sasha as long as the judge in court approves the new papers. Prayers appreciated.
After we settled in that we could actually adopt our little guy, we learned the Church family we had looked forward to seeing and staying with again, had canceled our stay. A change in staff, and our plans were axed :( we are very saddened and trying to find peace. I personally feel very defeated over this day. So many low points. Seriously seeking God's plan.

We plan to take the train to our region Tuesday night. We should be seeing our sweet little guy Wednesday !!! Can not wait to surprise him with his family! It is his turn :)
