Sunday in Odessa

Today we can not go to the orphange because they are closed on Sundays. We have been having a really good time with them. Last night I we got to have them all for ourselves. It was a challenge for us, but its preparing us for the real world. They were all well behaved, but at times the older one, Elisa could really throw a fit. When she gets mad she just starts flipping around yelling. So we just let her do it and ignored it. She would then stop and come back to us,
Arthur is so big that I can barely hold him. Im going to have to buy something to strap him on me somehow. Even the caregivers kept coming up and grabbing his cheeks.
Im loving seeing the kids, but I am still very homesick. We have to walk far to come here to McDonalds just to use the internet. This area though is much much better than Kyiv.
Ill leave you with a few more pictues of our sweet little babies today. The blue stuff on Arturs head is medicine. I guess when they get scab they put it on them. Ill keep you posted. We are just waiting on our court date now!!


  1. They're all so beautiful! So, that's where Elisa was when we were there (having surgery). We are praying for a super fast court date so ya'll can come home! We felt like no one liked us the entire time we were there, as well. It's a frustrating feeling!! Love you guys! Praying for you!!

  2. CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!! Gosh, what KISSABLE faces!!!!

  3. Ahh Elisa sounds like the two year old I was babysitting last night! My H doesn't have DS but she can thrash around like nobody's business. lol. I still can't get over Arthur! I have that picture ofhim where he's looking through the bars. It's always stuck with me. He is such a little chunk muffin! I'm so glad!

  4. Thanks for sharing! I love the pic of you all together! And I agree... cute, cute and cute! :)

  5. Congrats you guys! They are adorable! And if anyone could give these kids the best home, it's you!

  6. Hi - I just found your blog thru RR. I am crying. How wonderful you get to bring these 3 beautiful children home! We have an 8 month old son with Ds - and ironically, we adopted him in San Antonio (we live in Utah)! Best wishes to your whole family!!
