I found the sisters!

Okay, *I* didn't actually find them. But I found the phone number for the lovely woman who is an assistant director at their former orphanage. (Remember that all my visits are not technically allowed...so it's trickier than it sounds to manage this.) My friend called her a couple of times and was able to find out (strictly off the record) where they are, the name of the director there, and get a phone number!

I also found out that their wonderful former caretaker is still calling them. That eases my heart the tiniest bit.

It's good to have friends.

Another friend in the US has joined my crusade to find these girls a family and is doing everything she can to advocate for them. We are hoping they can be a part of a hosting program this summer.

Oh, I hope.

Two down, one to go.

Well, that's a bit of a relief at least... and I hope the hosting program works out.

And someone must know someone who knows Kristina's family... word will get out eventually I'm sure.

Iam glad to see you have had some success..today on the msn news it was reported a lady in tennessee put her adopted child on a flight back to russia with a note saying she didnt want him anymore..and it was annouced that russia as of today has stopped all adoptions from u.s citizens from russia until the u.s signs some adoption obligation paperwork and criteria for host families..just thought id let you know kate as this might impact lexis friend if she isnt adopted already..im very sad about this..p.s but glad about your news!! huggs from canada..

oh my gosh, where have I been?! What can I do to help? Do you think hosting programs will be effected by the recent events in the world of Russian / American adoption?
