Introducing Maryna Michelle!
We spent the afternoon touring her dormitory and then the village. Rob and I returned to Odessa for the evening, did some more paperwork on Tuesday, and flew home Wednesday.
Rob returns next week to pick up the official adoption decree and take custody of our new daughter. Then comes a paperwork chase of getting her new birth certificate to reflect our last name and then using that to apply for a new Ukrainian passport to use at immigration. Then a trip to the US Embassy to apply for immigration and, if all goes well, a flight home together about 10 days after he leaves.
