with Aubree was good. She seemed to be happy to see us. She has a cold (on top of the chicken pox) and Dave has caught her cold so they are both sniffling and have runny noses. Aubree's chicken pox look better today, hopefully, she is getting over it now. We brought her bubbles today and she didn't know what to think of them...she just stared at them the whole time Dave was blowing them for her. She ended up falling asleep in Dave's arms so he loved that. We look forward to the afternoon visits because we get two hours to visit (in the morning we only get an hour).

Not much else going on. There is alot of down time to fill so we get homesick with having so much time to sit around and think of Brennie but we still get to talk to her, my sister and my parents every day so that helps. And Brenna sounds like she is doing really good. Everyone keeps her very busy and we know she is having loads of fun.

Again, thanks to all of you...Nik, Julie and others who, continously, e-mail us to offer support and to just chat so we have something to take our minds off things!

Please keep your fingers crossed for us that our paper work arrives from Kiev soon so we can have our court date by Thurs. at the latest!!

We will post some new pictures tonight after our afternoon visit with Aubree.

Hi guys,
I am glad to hear she is warming up to you, you knew it would happen in time. I still can't get over how much she looks like Shannon. How much longer will all of this take? Once you get your court date, then what? Keep us posted. Can't wait to see some more pictures.

Hi Guys,

The pix with the bubbles is adorable. I can't wait to see her with Brenna. Nikki and Jeremy are doing a good job of keeping Brenna entertained. Jeremy said that Rascal is sooo good with the boys. They can touch him and he just lays there. On the other hand Husky takes off as soon as they get near.

Hopefully your court date is near and you will all be home soon. Love - Mom
