Remembering Ukraine

Posted in Uncategorized on November 13, 2010 by heart4kids

We're a happy family!

It was exactly two years ago that Melissa and I, and Trevor, traveled to Ukraine to finalize the adoption process. We had no idea that we would spend a whole month there in order to finish! Nor did we know that it would take three more months until we actually got the girls home. Nothing is ever as simple as advertised!

We are all still adjusting to life together as a family, but generally it has been a positive and educational experience for each of us.  The girls are proud of their American identity, and we almost never hear them speaking Russian anymore.  (Although people often say to them, “I love your Russian accent!”)
