We arrived in Sofia today around 1:00 p.m. Our translator met us at the airport and then drove us to our apartment which is in the city center. We have a really nice apartment this time with two bedrooms, an American style bath complete with a tub, and a roomy kitchen that has a small terrace overlooking the street. There is a grocery in the downstairs of the building next door, which is very convenient, and Pizza Roma, a favorite destination, from our first trip to Bulgaria is right down the street.
We had dinner at Pizza Roma tonight, and we are going to be early as our driver is picking us up around 8:00 a.m to drive to Pleven to get Yuli (Aleksandar). It is shaping up to be a long day. The drive to Pleven is about three hours. After we get Yuli at the orphanage, we will drive back to Sofia and then we will go to Yuli's passport appointment and finally his medical appointment.
We are praying tonight that God had prepared our son for his new family and that this transition will go well.
Hopefully, I will get some time to post some pictures of our apartment and the area tomorrow, and of course, our newest family member!
