Hi to all we were able to access some internet. We survived New Years Eve the traditional Ukrainian way. We had lots of food, ice cream, cake, and gave gifts to the girls. I can't wait to show all the interesting pix we have. Well from what we can guess we will attempt to be on a plane to America on the 19th. Not soon enough for me!! The girls are also getting inpatient about getting back home. :) There are most days that I even forget the actual date and day of the week. I miss my schedule and we are getting tired of living out of a suitcase but we do have the girls and that is what matters. We have made good friends with some of the taxi drivers and they seem happy we are adopting. Uri has even showed us pix of his family. I will be getting photos of him and his awesome taxi. It reminds me of something my aunt Zenith drove when I was in High School. Well until later. Please keep praying that we are on a plane coming to America on the 19th of Jan or before. We miss everyone and the girls Noel (Svieta) and Christine (Iryna) Kochanek miss their family and send their love.
