We are cleared to travel to Semey KZ!

We just received word that the orphanage will be ready for our arrival anytime after 11/12/2005. So we will travel as close to that date as we can. Probably Sunday 11/13/05 or Monday. We will let you know when the flights are booked.
  • We will take 18-20 hours to fly to Almaty KZ. The next day we will fly 2 hours to Semey KZ.
  • Semey is about 10 miles from Russia in the very eastern part of the country, along the Irtysh River.
  • It is 11 an hour time difference. The area is still very Russian so the adults and kids will all speak Russian.
  • We will bond with the kids for 2 weeks then 1 week of paperwork. We will back sometime in early December.
