We had such a wonderful evening last night. We went to one of the other American families hotel room and sat and watched our kids play. There are three families here now with our agency, EAC: the couple from Wisconsin who adopted a 15 month old girl (they arrived the same day as us) and a couple from Chicago who adopted a 10 month old baby girl. The couple from Chicago has four other children at home, three of those were adopted from Russia, and one is biological, ranging in ages from 7 years old to 18 months. They are basically experts now. It was so nice sitting and talking to them about their different experiences and how things have changed for the better for the kids in Russia since they adopted their first child almost 7 years ago.
There was one other couple there, from a different agency. They had just been granted custody of their three year old little boy. He had not warmed up to our English language, so he was very shy. The other kids played really well together.
This morning when I woke up, I noticed it was snowing outside. It has snowed here before, but never with snowflakes quite this big. They are so fluffy and it is sticking to everything. So beautiful!
Only 3 more days to go!! Yay!!
We played around in our hotel room today...so here are a few of the picture I took from today.
