HALLELUJAH !!!!!!!
We have received ACCREDITATION in Russia!
Let the fun begin . . . . AGAIN!
Finally!

We had a conference call with our agency on Friday afternoon and they let us know that it had happened. But they asked us not to post it publicly until the certificate was in hand. Do you know how hard that news was for me to KEEP!
The certificate ceremony was held today in Moscow
at 12 noon (last night while were sleeping).

Buckner International Adoption is accredited!!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!!!



p.s.
Just a little "coincidence??" The accreditation was approved
1 year later, to the day, that we found out about losing Viktoria. July 23.


p.p.s.
I just realized another "coincidence." I started this blog on July 28, 2007 one year to the day that we received this good news.
