Until we get the word that all is good on the Moscow side of things. We made the commitment, now we need to make sure that they will still allow us to. We left rather abruptly and with some tears, so hopefully they won't think we're total crackpots and let us proceed.
It seemed okay when we talked to the personnel on the US side of things. When we left Russia they told us they were leaving all our paperwork in place because they weren't off the database anyway. We'll find out tomorrow if everything is still a go.
Wouldn't it be ironic if we'd overcome our fears, made the mental and emotional commitment, only to find out that they said "No"? Not funny at all, and quite frankly the thought of it makes me just ill. I'll let you know how it goes....
Any prayers to the universe in general would be appreciated.
When we get resolution one way or the other regular posting will resume. If anyone wants more of the story or to hear how we overcame our massive freak out, let us know. Perhaps the story will help someone in the future.
A big shout out to my buddies Lisa and Justin who are there now waiting for court on Tuesday. Good luck guys, we're thinking of you!!
