Family of Four...Pashalsta!

Dear Friends and Family...

We have just returned from court and GREAT NEWS...We are officially the parents of Bryce Andrew Vasiliy Dunn. This picture to the left is the photo we took just after court right here in Krasnoyarsk. We started the day a bit late as some of our sleeping schedules have not snyched with the time zone here!!!

We spent time doing Julia's school work and I spent time working on several Habitat for Humanity projects in the morning and then we took Julia sledding on the man made ice sculpture and Julia really enjoys this a lot.

We got ready for court and headed off. The court session lasted about an hour and then we waited out in the foyer for about 30 minutes and came back into have the judge read us the decree and congratulate us as the parents of Bryce. Billy did most of the speaking and then they asked Cindy a few questions and the heart of a mom came out. I think that the time that impaced me the most was the statement the orphange director made that not one person from Bryce's family came to see him in the past 2 years...NONE! ZERO! NOT ONE VISIT! Needless to say we are so grateful to the Lord. The judge asked many questions about finances, the reason for adoption, our family etc.

We are going to go to a German restaurant and enjoy dinner. In order to save $$$ we eat breakfast and lunch in ther room and it has worked so well. Thanks to the many of you that were praying for us!!!

With Love,

Billy, Cindy and Julia (and Bryce as well)
