The Passport paperwork is in!!!!!!!!!

I got a call at 7am today that the paperwork is complete!!  Todd can make his Tuesday appointment at the US Embassy for the VISA and final phase of this journey!  Praise the Lord!  They are on an overnight train now to Kyiv and will arrive around 6am (10pm our time).  He called me while on the train and gave me the scoop:

***Inna has been perfect all day...smiling, laughing, and being cooperative
***They ate dinner at McDonalds--Inna ate 2 French fries, a hamburger bun, a few bites of burger, and didn't want her potato
***Inna will not let Daddy out of her sight...he says he can't even go to the bathroom without a little follower:)
***As he talked with me, she was twirling her hair and falling asleep.  She was laying half on his lap and half off the seat---he said she was so cute!

I'll post more later but now we have an idea of when they'll be home!  It is VERY possible that they will be able to make the Thursday morning flight and be in KC on Thursday afternoon...that is our prayer!!
