Finally In My Arms

Today Svetlana picked Tyler and I up at 11:15, we drove to a childrens store so that I could purchase a few items we needed to have at the apartment.  We then went to a local corner store and bought a really beautiful cake and candies to give to the Baby Home Director.

We drove up to the Baby Home and went inside, we were directed to sit at the couch and get her outfit ready for her.  We did not bring a snowsuit, and since it was a little chilly Svetlana told us to bring Jeans and a sweater with a coat today.  I gave it to one of the workers and before I knew it, our daughter was brought out to Tyler and I in her outfit.  I have to say she looked sooooo adorable.  We got packed up and headed out to the car.  What a grand feeling of being able to leave the Baby Home forever.

YEAHHHHHHH!!!
Whew. I am so happy for you and your family and especially little Ava. She looks precious (as always) in her Gotcha outfit. Funny enough, I bought that coat for Caroline for next year. :)
Have a fun time bonding with your baby girl in your last couple of days in Russia.
