Remembering Ukraine

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!”)

  1. Jim, it’s nice to hear from you. Yes it is almost 2 yrs since we met in the stairwell at OES! Time is really flying by. Valya was trying to find Jessica on FB about a week ago. Blessings to you!
