We're home! GOD IS SO GOOD!!!

So sorry you guys that it's taken me so long to update, but here we go. We made it home late late late Saturday night after one of the most amazing weeks of our lives. Our little angel girl is an absolute miracle. I adore her to pieces and can't believe I have to wait here for the next 4 weeks without her. She is the most precious little girl I have ever seen in my whole life. I knew the second they carried her in and I got the first glimpse of her sweet face that she was meant to be our daughter. I've never been more sure of anything in my life. They brought her in all bundled up in a hat and snowsuit and it was a moment in time I will treasure in my heart forever. I always heard people say you will know it in your heart, but never understood really what they were talking about until i experienced it myself. Eddie knew immediately as well. We got to spend the week with her and with each day she bacame more and more comfortable with us. She absolutely loves Eddie and I have never seen him like this. It really is different with a girl, I think she could feel his love. At one point she was sitting on his lap and put her nose to his tummy and then just layed her head down on his stomach. She is loving, sweet, content and has the cutest smile. We could tell that she has been loved where she is now. They are taking such good care of her. On Thursday we had to tell her good-bye and it was the hardest thing I have ever done. These next 4 weeks, until we go back for court, can't go fast enough. I also have to say that I just loved our coordinator, translator and driver in our region. They are some of the most thoughtful, caring and compassionate people I have ever met. They will hold a special place in my heart forever. They helped bring us to our little miracle and I will be forever grateful. Please continue to keep us and our little one in your prayers.


  1. WoW!!!
    Congratulations! She sounds like a dream!
    Not sure how I stumbled upon your blog, but am so glad I did!
    We brought our daughter home from Russia almost 2 years ago. It is an amazing experience.
    Take care,

  2. What a wonderful glad to hear that everything went so great!

    The next 4 weeks will go fast (looking back in retrospect as we had to wait 7 grueling months between trips) ~ I'm sure you'll spend these 4 weeks just looking at her pictures, photos on your cell phone, computer wallpaper, etc. You won't get enough of her until you hold her again in your arms!

    Blessings for a fast month,
    Laura :)

  3. I'm so happy to hear it was a magical experience for you. I know I was completely amazed at the instant connection I felt with our little girl. I know I had heard others talk about it, but somehow I didn't expect it to be like that and it was!! I will hoping it will be a very short time until you return to Russia and bring her home :o)

  4. Congratulations!!!!!! Sounds like a magical trip and 4 weeks will be here before you know it! Good luck! Can't wait to see pics!!!
