Have you ever seen a chicken with it's head cut off ... run around? No ... me either ... but I imagine I looked alot like one this morning! My bags are packed! I'm picking up Joanie ... my traveling buddy at 1:00 pm. We leave Atlanta, GA at 4:30 p.m. We will have about a 5 hour layover in Frankfurt, Germany. We will arrive in Almaty, Kazakhstan around midnight Sunday night. The coordinator, interpreter, and driver will pick us up and we will spend the night at a hotel in Almaty. The next morning, will catch a flight for Semey, Kazakhstan. Upon arrival, it is my understanding we will be taken straight to the orphanage!!!! It is on this day that I will meet Noah for the first time and sign papers to "bond" for the required two week bonding period. After this first meeting, we will be taken to our apartments to settle in. I'm not sure when I will be able to post next ... but hopefully I will have some awesome pictures and exciting news to share!!!
