What can I say....AWESOME
Saturday, September 15, 2007
We've been able to meet with our little guy for several days and it is just the best time we've ever had. I don't think I can even relate in words how we're feeling right now.

Everything is working out better than what our hopes were for this trip.

When we get back I'll write up a more detailed "trip report" but let's just say that our guy is have a blast with us and us with him. He's a bit shy as we start each visit but once he smiles going there's no stopping him.

We're also enjoying the various sites and food and everything. This city rocks!!!

Our translator lives very close to the hotel so she's got all these little restaurants or cafes that she knows really well that have traditional Russian food that is awesome. Of course we don't want to leave for other reasons (some little Russian we know) but really everything else is so cool we'd be happy to wait staying right here.

More later....

    Long time reader, first time poster. We had our first trip to Russia last December and second trip this past February. We've now been home for about six months and can't imagine living without our little guy. After reading your blog throughout the time we were going through the process, I'm so happy that you are FINALLY getting your opportunity to meet your little guy. Enjoy your time with him! You'll never forget these first days!
