Happy Valentine’s Day! Even though Joe and I could not be together, we got the best Valentine of all – Olesya! Our trip to the Embassy was very easy and just involved paying for Olesya’s entry visa to the U.S. and signing a few more papers. We have a sealed packet that we will present when we go through customs in Charlotte, North Carolina. I guess that means I don’t have to declare Olesya on the customs form.
We will have a celebratory dinner with Sheri and Helena and then we will finish our packing and head to the airport in the middle of the night to head for home. This will be the last update that I send from Kazakhstan. We are finally brining Olesya home!
