November 19, 2001 one year since our court date in Vladivostok

For some families, their angel arrives in an hopsital.
For others, we have to take a plane and show in court before we can bring your home.
Eitherway is fine.
During this entire process before we even knew about you, there was so many ups and downs!
But now, we know why! You were waiting for us on the other side of the globe and we were waiting for YOU!
People says you are so lucky!
Well they really don't know we are the lucky ones!
As we are not going to change the perspective of people viewing adoption as a charity gesture, we just smile.
In our hearts we know it was not a gesture of charity. We needed you as much as you needed us. Our story may be a little bit different than other parents/ children but really the end process is the same. We love you more than anything in this world! You were so wanted and we waited so long for your arrival! We would not change anything about what life has giving us!

Thank you for being part of our lifes! Today is our one year family anniversary!

We love you,

Mom and Dad!

Halloween 2010

Posing for the Camera...crying on his way to his first house.. now ready to do it by himself...

Finally that day came that we were able to enjoy Halloween with our little one! It was a great night. At first he screamed wondering why we had to knock at a unknown house. .. then he would just go by himself and smile as he can't say trick or treat :-) but he always said "Thank you" and "Bye Bye" even if the adults were not listen to him :(

Enjoy the pics.
