Tyler and I were able to look at all the pictures one more time before going out in the hallway to consider which we were interested in meeting. We both agreed easily to see the first boy, “Elijah”, who is 18 months old and has a heart condition which is operable. Tyler was interested to meet “Dmitri”, who is 3 years old and has cerebral palsy. I was interested to meet “Dennis”, who is 4 years old and also has a heart condition that is operable. After thinking and pondering, we decided to meet all three of them! We went back in to the office and said we wanted to meet “Elijah”, “Dmitri”, and “Dennis”. They said that we lacked one form and sent us off to the notary. $100 later in notary forms, we returned to the MOE where they gave us our referrals, including the last names to each boy, none of which I can spell or pronounce.
Tomorrow we will visit “Dmitri” and “Dennis”, who are both in a baby house which is 3 hours away. On Wednesday, we will visit “Elijah” who is in the baby house here in Nizhny Novgorod. At this time, we feel that we will adopt all three boys. However, we want to meet them all before making a decision. Once we commit to adopting one, two, or all of them, we will include pictures and their new names – providing that Tyler & I have agreed upon them! I must remind you that I was thinking we would adopt a boy and girl, so we only have one boy name chosen thus far! Ha ha!
We are very, very excited about these three boys and can’t wait to share more about them + pictures! Happy day! J
