And baby makes three

It's been a really busy 2 months and I'm sorry I haven't been a better blogger but perhaps you'll forgive me if I share with you the view from the front seat of my car this afternoon...


6/24/10 Asleep in the car


Yes, that really is what it looks like- my son sleeping in his car seat in my car at home in the US. Finally. It's been a rough couple of months in international adoption with the Hansen case but we were lucky enough to get the call and have our court appearance (almost a month ago today) to finalize Joshua's adoption. We just arrived home with him very early last Friday morning and have had some minor bumps adjusting but everyone is doing well. He's a great kid and we both feel very lucky to have him in our lives. As soon as I get some more quiet nap time I'll work on uploading some of the trip pics and pics from the Grandmas who were kind enough to snap a bunch while Erich and I were kind of out of it with jet lag. We've definitely got pics and stories to share and even a few stitching pics- yes, I got to stitch in Russia and even found a little craft shop that sold cross stitch at the nearby shopping mall in the region the baby is from so of course I had to buy a couple kits:)

These will have to hold you over for now though...

Great pictures! I am so happy for you! I really worried when I read the story about the woman who sent her adopted child back to Russia on her own. I was wondering if you were affedted. I am so glad it worked out for you in the end.

I was very worried when that story came out in the news. I was so afraid you would have another set back.

Congrats to the whole family
