(Update 11:30am EDT) paperwork is definitely in Bishkek. Short trip as trips go. Went from D.C. to Memphis, to London then straight to Bishkek! Now we wait again. The hardest wait since we have no idea how long we will wait.
As of 6pm Bishkek time (that is 8am our time) My dossier should be in the hands of my in country coordinator. So I would assume that on Friday or Monday she will hand deliver those same papers to the Commission of Education. What does that mean??? Means one step closer. We are two signatures away from bringing our Kyrgz girl home!!! One from the Deputy of the Ministry of Education, and one from the judge of Bishkek. How long will that take. Well that is a good question. I have been told there is absolutely no rhyme or reason for how this operation works. So, that being said, we could be looking at any given time frame. This is the most scary of the time frames since we have absolutely no idea. Since the court system has been shut down for so long there are many many families waiting for their paperwork to be reviewed and sent for court dates. But again there is no set way that they decide on which papers they are going to sign. So we will just have to wait, keep praying, keep sending Juju, Mojo, good vibes, and the magic of candle light seems to help too.
Ok so in honor of my papers (and my fellow traveler from Ohio I must ask her if I can add her name here) arrival in Bishkek I am adding a video clip here. This is my first attempt at adding music to a video so it got a little fuzzy. But I think it is kind of cool...... Enjoy!!!!
