Day 4

The day started out by going to the notary and having the official paperwork notorized and then delivered to the Dept of Education. We had some time before it was time to go for our visit with "K" so we went downtown to the seaport/wharf and were able to take a look around and take some pictures. They will be nice to add to our memory book.

Today on our visit with "K" we played outside as the weather was beautiful. We are taking advantage of the nice weather now as when we return for our 2nd trip, the weather will most likely be very cold and snowy! There is a nice playground outside of the Baby Home and also some riding toys that he enjoys mostly pushing around rather than riding on. He also liked going down the slide and swinging on the swing while Daddy pushed him.
As the visit came to an end, it was as difficult as we had imagined it would be. We left him with a blanket and teddy bear for his crib and also a photo album that the caregivers will show him as much as possible of his new family.

We will be saying Goodbye to Vladivostok tomorrow but not for long!!!!! We are counting the days until we can get back here to our baby boy and bring him home forever!!!!

We love you "K". Sleep tight little angel and dream of your mommy and daddy. We will be back for you very very soon.

Day 3

Today was another wonderful day - a day we will truely never forget. We officially accepted the referral today of "K" and signed the letter at the Baby Home which was then taken to the Dept of Education. Tomorrow morning we will go to the Notary to complete the paperwork to officially petition to adopt "K". Today he was babbling away and playing with all of his toys. He also enjoyed reading some of his new books. It is so amazing to us just how loving he is! He is truely a miracle to us and we are so blessed to have him join our family. After our visit was over and the caregiver came to get him, he wanted nothing to do with letting go and cried and cried as he was taken away. Although it was heartbreaking to see him cry, it was such a sign that he really likes us and is beginning to trust us. Tomorrow will be our last visit with him and the thought of it brings us to tears but we will do everything in our power to get all of the paperwork completed at lightening speed so we can get back here to him as soon as we possibly can.
