Can't leave early

... but at least it's all over. The Embassy visit went fine.

Delta said that the only way we could take the available seats on earlier flights was to pay $2800 extra FOR EACH ticket. We said no. Unless someone wants to donate that to us, then we'll call them back. :) As it is, we can't leave until Sunday as originally planned.


Here is the complete blog of the adoption experience in paperback form, "Russian Adoption: From Nashville to Astrakhan and back". And here is the fictionalized, future "homeland tour" (action adventure) version in various forms: on Kindle, various electronic formats, and in paperback.

"Sorry to hear about that. At least you'll be home for Christmas just like the song sings ;) " — Jeannie, 2007-12-19 03:09:39
"Well that stinks, if I win the lottery today I will definitely call you this afternoon and wire you the money. There is one small silver lining with Elizabeth's possible allergies, if they are not only food related, the carpets will be freshly steam cleaned on Saturday morning before you return. Don't forget to send me your flight times so that Todd and I will be on time to pick up you all up. :-) " — Stephanie, 2007-12-19 03:34:04
"Call them back and demand that they change it for no additional charge.. or you'll leave them one of Elizabeth's "presents" in the bathroom - the one closest to the cockpit!!! Looking forward to seeing you! " — Leslie, 2007-12-19 09:43:30
