We made it to St. Pete. We transferred in Zurich with no problems and arrived here at 2:15pm. We were met by our translator Luda and driver Sasha. We are styaing at the Renaissance hotel this time which is within walking distance to the city center.
When we arrived at the hotel our agency coordinator Galina was here to go over our itinerary. Tomorrow we get to see baby B- Yeah I can't wait. After we visit we are meeting with the woman who is representing us in court to go over the procedure. Monday at 8am we are going for our 8 Dr medical exam. After that we get to visit with baby B again. On Tuesday at 11am is our court hearing. We were told it should take approximately 1 hour. There will be other couples there too. We visit with baby B after court on Tuesday and then on Wednesday before our flight back to NYC. We will find out at our court date when we can return to pick him up. If looks very unlikely that the 10 days will be waived.
Surprisingly it feels much warmer here than when we were here in December. There was very little snow on the sidewalks. Luda told us that the snow is gone by mid to the end of March.
That's all for now. I'll update again tomorrow after we see him.
It has been a looooong time since I posted!
