It's done! The first day at the baby house has come and gone and I met a number of beautiful children. There were two 4 year old boys, who I was not approved to adopt (and who are older than I was looking for).. I also met two 2 year old little girls, one of whom is being adopted by the couple I traveled to Kaz with. Then there were the babies.. I met three infant girls, two who were 8 months of age and one who is 13 months. Let me tell you-- this is hard! I am visiting with 2 of those girls-- an 8 month old named Medina and the 13 month old, named Natalya. There was some pressure to make a quick decision, but those of you who know me know that is not physically possible for me. I am the girl who visited Home Depot for months before deciding on bathroom fixtures-- this is a little more important that a pretty sink :) Anyway, this afternoon the pressure eased off, but I will have to give answer soon. I am just waiting for the adoption specialist I am consulting with to look at the info and photos I sent her. Until I have made a choice, I am going to hold off on posting a picture of either girls..
It's dinner time now.. I've avoided the horsemeat until now-- even though they might have tried to slip some into a breakfast pastry I had today :)
Sonya & Brent-- I found Nicholas today.. Medina is in his room.. He looked great, very active and smiley. Natalya said you had spoiled him though-- and now it was the "poor nurses" who had to handle him.. By the looks of it, it isn't that tough a job at all. I'll get you pictures when I can..
