Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. We started our day flying out of Kiev at 5:30 a.m. and flew via Frankfurt into Bismarck at 2:30 p.m. After finding out our luggage didn't make it, my dear sis-in-law Brenda gave us a ride to our home in Minot two hours away. Our luggage will be delivered to our house tomorrow.
It was wonderful to hug and kiss our kids! They loved seeing the pictures of Bella, the country, and hearing our stories.
I am sooo tired I think I am going to fall off my chair. So, will post more tomorrow....
PS - the caregivers in Bella's orphanage assured us that they will show our photo album to Bella every day and tell her that her "Mama and Papa are coming back soon!"
