and then we were six

Yeah! We made it through this very stressful day. And yes, our request to adopt was granted! I am trying to put together a post describing the day's events, which will be very long and detailed. I will post it once I'm done. We'll be heading out for a celebratory dinner with the other couple that is adopting from the same children's home (we've pretty much done everything together today) in about an hour.

Tomorrow we are free all morning and then will go to the children's home in the afternoon.

Well, at least you were prepared for the ping pong EKG! :)

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad it's over for you! Your adoption felt so close to me for some reason. I am so glad it's done and you had a successful day. I wish I could see St. Pete in the snow. Be sure to post some photos. And I am dying to see a picture of that gorgeous angel! :)

CONGRATS!! What great, great news! I agree with Ondrea - pictures of the baby girl please AND pics of St. Pete's in the snow (once you've recovered from the stress of court, of course!).

St. Petersburg

Saint Petersburg: Sankt-Peterburg, Russian pronunciation: is a city and a federal subject of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (1914–1924) and Leningrad (1924–1991). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings. The largest of the museums is the Hermitage Museum, featuring interiors of the former imperial residence and a vast collection of art. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of its foundation, Saint Petersburg was selected as the main motif in a recent Finnish commemorative coin, the €10 Mannerheim and Saint Petersburg commemorative coin, minted in 2003. The reverse of the coin features a view of Saint Petersburg, with the Peter and Paul Fortress and its three turrets. In the coin the words "St. Petersburg 1703-2003" can be seen.
