A video about our family

Slow slow come*

Slowly, things are happening. I am accumulating various items for our trip, such as a microphone for our laptop, so we can use skype during the trip. My friend, Sarah, is applying for her passport this week. We are talking over baby names. We really like the name STELLA for a girl, but cannot agree on a boy name. Perhaps that means that we'll adopt 2 girls? Not sure. Tyler & I keep imagining Stella to have curly hair and either blue or green eyes. We can't wait to get to Nizhny Novgorod and to see the files of the children. We are so eager to find our kids there.

It's interesting how things change when you already have children. I remember getting the baby nursery all ready for when Anna was born (she's our bio miracle). I had a theme, matching blankets and sheets, etc. Now? I'm not even thinking about themes, etc, just want my babies home. We'll find a place for them to sleep. Can't wait.

Are you traveling blind? You won't even know boy/girl and ages?

We got our referral 2 weeks before travel.

Don't worry about having things set up. You'll have plenty of time for that while you're waiting for your court date. Heaven knows you'll need to keep busy to help the time pass.

So I assume Sarah will be going to Russia to help bring the kiddos home? Oh I can't wait to hear of your time in Russia. I'm assuming you'll be blogging every night!!!

We are traveling blind, yes. We are looking for boy or girl, from 0-4 years of age. Sarah is coming with us on the first trip. She's newly married, so I don't think she'll come the second trip. I will blog as much as possible! :D
