I contacted our facilitator, and our paperwork has been translated and is ready for submission. Hopefully we will be contacted with a travel date in September.

In the meantime, I have been learning some Ukrainian and Russian.  I ordered a wonderful CD that is made especially for families adopting from Ukraine.  It teaches you how to say basic words, as well as phrases that parents would typically use with their children.  Since we don't know what region of Ukraine we will be traveling to, we need to learn Russian also.  Regions in the eastern part of Ukraine speak Russian.  Luckily, many words are the same or similar.
