Introducing our budding family. We hope you will enjoy watching us grow... and everything else under the sun. ;)

A Few Pics...

While we sit through some dreary weather, I thought we would post some pictures that we have sitting on our computer. Even though we may not post a lot on the weekends, we are still thinking of all our family and friends.
On a side note, we truly appreciate all the comments that have been posted and thank you for all your support - they mean a lot to us! ;)

Your daughter is just beautiful! Congratulations! I am sorry that you are having a hard time. From someone who has been there, done that twice now, just remember that this time is so surreal and things will fall into place once you are home. When we returned to pick up our daughter after 9 weeks away, she was terrified of her Daddy. Literally screamed in his presence. We don't know what happend but spent the next few weeks trying to convince her that Daddy wasnt'a monster. Once home she quickly became a Daddy's girl. You are doing the right thing by taking it slow. And focusing on being the ones who meet her basic needs (food, love, sleep, potty) is key. Learning a few Russian words for these things and some sign language would be good. Good luck - I can't wait to read how this little flower blossoms in your care.
