Say Hello to Andrei
Tuesday, December 11, 2007
Well, it's truly official. Okay, so it's not quite officially official since we still have to enter the United States and pass through immigration to provide Andrei with U.S. Citizenship status. But it's official enough for Stef to allow me to post a picture or two. Actually here's a little slide show that shows our little man is signed, sealed, and delivered to us.

    He's absolutely beautiful. Congratulations! I love the song with the photos. Who knew a "little" paperwork could change your whole life?! Seeing that couch took me right back to our time in Moscow. What a wonderful adventure you have ahead of you.
