Well we have made it to our 1 year anniversary. Exactly one year ago today we filled out our application for our international agency and applied for our Russian Program. While I knew that adoption would be hard, I NEVER in my wildest dreams thought it would be this hard. We are heading forward and are looking on. We have had our ups and our downs. One major up is that we are about 2/3 funded. We are getting there. While there have more downs than I can list the worst is that we still have a long road ahead. We are sticking it out. Keep praying and hoping that no more "incidents" happen. That the agreement is signed, and that things start flying in Russia.
