I began this blog to chronicle our 3 1/2 year journey toward adoption and building a new house in the meantime!
We began this adoption believing our child was in Russia. We traveled to Russia and met a 13 month old girl named Viktoria. We waited 18 months for a court date to return to adopt her but learned July 23, 2007 that a Russian family adopted her instead while we were waiting. A year later, we were hugely surprised when we got a call that a baby boy was about to be born in the hospital 1.4 miles down the road from our new house and I was able to be in the delivery room when he was born July 29, 2008!

Today this blog has become more about our everyday life as a regular everyday family. It took a while to get here, but boy am I glad we're all home now!
