Kharhov Ukraine Day Seven: Heading Home!

Mary is posting today.

We are posting a little bit early because after our visit with the kids today we are heading straight for the train station to start our journey back home! Tomorrow will mark six weeks for us in Ukraine. That is a very long time to be away from our boys in Virginia and for James to be away from work. We have worked out with our facilitator to sign our agreements for the adoption today, and if M signs his agreement to be adopted in the next couple of days then we will return in a couple of weeks for court to finalize the adoption. From there we will work on passports for the children, medical appointments, and then work with the US Embassy to get the kids ready for America! Normally, adoptive parents are encouraged to stay in country until the court date, but with the length of time we have already been in Ukraine we were able to work out coming home in between adoption agreements and court.

We are beyond excited to see our boys! It might be awhile before we post again. We'll try to post again after we get settled back home. Thank you again for all of the support and prayers! Please keep those prayers coming, it is not over yet!


  1. Yay! I'm sure your boys are beyond excited to see you as well!! Safe travels!

  2. We are praying for you guys! You guys are incredible! Love you!--J, B, and Boys

  3. I hope and pray that M will choose to become part of your family.
