We have dates & LOI !!!!

Quick post as there's much to do.

We will arrive in Kaz on April 27th, meet with the in-country side of our agency the morning of the 28th then fly on to Karaganda the same day. Bob and I will get to hold our precious little one sometime on the 29th of April.

Our referral date and the travel date hold such emotion for us beyond the obvious. One year ago we were in shock and denial when my father-in-law was released from a local German hospital. He was diagnosed with cancer and not given very long to live. We received our referral on this same date one year later. On the one year anniversary of his death, we arrive in Kazakhstan to adopt his namesake.

Dad, we all love and miss you dearly. Thanks for pulling strings for us.

Congratulations! That is great, great news. It is pretty amazing that you will meet your little one on the day your father-in-law passed away.

Happy packing!

Exciting news! Yes, sounds like your father is pulling strings for you. What a lovely thought. :-)

We won't be far behind you. We should be leaving "by the end of the month," so hopefully our paths really will cross in Almaty!
