One year ago last Sunday we arrived in Moscow to meet a little girl---we’d only seen a few pictures of her, a short (but welcomed) video, and knew just a few scary things about her medical history:
One year ago Monday we walked into a room in the Kaluga baby home and saw this face in person for the first time:
One year ago today we were on our way to have Miss K’s picture take for her passport and other adoption documents:
This morning Miss K was running around with her toothbrush, watching Elmo and Abby, saying (for the first time!) “thank you!” and asking to have “Goodnight Moon” read for about the 7,513th time. We’re looking forward to a new season of Sesame Street because we’ve watched the last season so many times that Steve and I can recite lengthy portions. (Thank you God for TIVO).
What a difference a year makes! Thank you, God, for this amazingly special little girl!
