Dah! Dah! Dah!

Today we had our final court hearing. We are now mama and dada to our new son. Yeah! I know the photo isn't much but its all I can give you for the time being.
We had a good visit this afternoon and nice celebration dinner with the Culver family.
A little bit on how the rest of the trip should go.
First we must wait ten days before we have custody of our little man. The ten days is for the court to have an opportunity to appeal the decision. This rarely happens. During the ten days we will remain in Astrakhan and visit him once a day except for Sundays. We should get custody of him on October 26th (Gotcha Day). Then it will take seven more days for him to obtain a Russian passport. After he has a passport we will travel by airplane to Moscow. We will be in Moscow two to three days. There we will have an interview at the American Embassy and he will receive a visa to enter the U.S.A. After that we can bring him home. If all goes as it should we will be arriving in Memphis on November 6th (Happy Birthday Nana).
