Goodbye to Kharkov

In an hour we leave for the overnight train to Kiev. When the train arrives at the capitol at 6:30 AM, we will head to the US Embassy for Nazar's appointment with the embassy doctor at 8 AM. We don't know if we will have Internet service while we are in Kiev, so you may not hear from us until we return to the US--hopefully by this weekend.

This has been our fifth day with Levi Nazar Yoder, and our hearts are filled with joy.

I hope your time in Kiev goes smoothly and well. I don't know whether they do ALL the adoption medicals at the same place, but the place we were was very crowded and you had to rush to get into the next empty room. There were other Americans there adopting as well.

You are almost home :) I forgot to tell you how much I have loved seeing the pictures of you and Levi Nazar - always smiling - what a perfect match God made putting you together as a family!!
Hugs to all of you, Aunt Karen -

Hello Yoder Family,

What an amazing journey. I do hope you make it home soon with little Levi Nazar. The blog and images have been wonderful to follow along with you on your adventure.

I just finished reading all your blog entries. What a tale. I'm happy the adoption has completed and love the choice of your new son's name.

You've probably heard of this poem about adoption, but I thought about it when completing your blog:

Not flesh of my flesh
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously
My own.
Never forget
For a single minute:
You didn't grow under my heart
But in it.
