Warm Fuzzy

I promise I'll put together a real post in the next few days -- sometime between grading finals, waiting for the final touches on our dossier, getting new Russian visas, and getting the new carpet installed in the post-flood basement.

But for now I wanted to share some happy news that we got from our adoption facilitator, who reports:

Max looks through the photo album given by his parents every day. He knows his mom and dad and can point to them.

 And yes, I know that his actual understanding of what parents are, and what his "mom" and "dad" will mean to him is nearly non-existent.  But still. It's coming together.

Warm fuzziness.

(And a new photo to show you all)


  1. So sweet and awesome, and amazing, and brilliant, and every other good word out there!

  2. Your first family photo. 3 happy people! Such happy times for you. A perfect Christmas present for his "nana."
