We are here
We made it to the capital city with no problems or delays. The weather is beautiful as well as the city. Our apartment is small - basically a studio type but it is nice and clean. This morning (Tues.) we had our SDA appointment. It took all of about 5 min.! We were shown a picture of Ember to verify that is who we were adopting, then asked to tell them a bit about ourselves, and then it was over. Tomorrow we pick up her referral paperwork and catch our 15 train ride to her region.
We spend some time seeing some of the sights and walking the streets. It has been pleasant and interesting so far. Thursday is the day we expect to finally meet Ember. We did find out that she has no siblings and was born to a single mom. I probably won't update again until Thurs. night when I hope to have pictures of Ember to share!
