More Pictures...

because that is probably what you want to see. :)

We only have a few minutes to post and I didn't type anything ahead of time so I will keep it brief and share some pictures. The kids LOVE to play with the camera and they take pictures of everyone and all kinds of silly things. They pose each other and add props and everything. So far we have pictures of toys, orphanage pets, and even a dead cockroach. "Bi-oog"

Alina took these of Ilona and Igor yesterday. We don't have many of Edik since we only got to see him once. Now he is away with his groupa (group) at the Black Sea for a couple weeks so we won't see him for a while. :(



Igor playing with his Papa.


We got to take Alina to a place called Children's World yesterday with Julia. (Kind of an arcade or Chuck E. Cheese) It was on the third story of the mall. We were getting on the escalator to go up and we realized Alina had never seen one before. She carefully stepped on and giggled the whole way up. It was so cute. She stepped off cautiously at the end and stared back at it because she couldn't believe she just rode up moving stairs. :) How fun is that? We probably could have skipped Children's World and rode up and down all afternoon. Here are a few pictures of our fun. She had clearly never done anything like this before either. The trampoline was so fun for her!

Congrats on the new family additions they look like they fit already! May God continue to bless your bonding time! Did you download the "Russian Child Talk" PDF file so you have common phrases needed to speak to your kids? I can email it to you if you want.

I showed Henry the pictures of his cousins, and he wanted to keep looking at them. He wanted me to tell him all their names over and over. We can't wait to meet them and are so thrilled for you.

The whole post made me happy-weepy. I'm so glad things are going well. Things are looking up for you and your children!

Christine said...

Glad to see you are doing well! We are also in Ukraine--- in the Donetsk region. Wish we could get together on our way out but not sure if that will be possible.

Kevin and Krista said...

Christine, we are only about an hour and a half from Donetsk. It is where our facilitator lives actually. Maybe we will see you.

Dear Krista,
I just spent the last two hours looking at your wonderful blog. My husband and I will be traveling to Donetsk, Ukraine in a few days to adopt three brothers ages 5, 4 and 3. I have a couple of questions, if you don't mind. Please give me an email where I can write to you or write back to me at marielle.mellet@yahoo.com
Thank you very much and God bless your family!
