Day Three

Another quiet day of playing and bonding. Anya woke up in a good mood and ready to play. She is more and more comfortable around us and is starting to like to be held and kissed. That makes Leanna so happy. We are kind of stuck in the hotel because no businesses are open on Sunday. Cameron wanted to go out and try out his snow suit so we bundled up and he and I went out for an hour or so.

The meeting room upstairs called the White Rabbit, is a lifesaver. It gives us someplace else besides the lobby and our room to go, and we meet and hang out with other families there. There is a TV, a pool table, and a dart board in there, plus you can call down and order food from the restaurant to be brought up.

The first night, we met Jamie and Colin. Last night we had dinner with them. They are interesting people. He was a football coach, now hes a drug rep while he is working on a book. She is mother of three, a marathoner, and works as a school teacher. They have adopted Jake, a two year old, but they cant get him from the orphanage until this Wednesday. It's neat to hear all the other families stories and their journeys to bring them here.

We will take more pictures of everyone and upload them in time for your reading tomorrow.

Thanks to all of you who have commented so far. We are enjoying your response and support.


  1. I love the pictures! Cameron looks cold and I bet he is. I can't wait for y'all to come home. We had fun Saturday buying for Anya. Thanks for keeping all of us updated, I look forward to a new post everyday.
    We love you all very much! XOXO

  2. Cameron, you look like a blue snowman! Enjoy the snow while you can, because you won't see anything like it in Alabama.

  3. How fantastic that it is going better than you could have imagined! It sounds like Anya just needed loving parents and an awesome big brother! We are so happy for you!! Can't wait to see you on Christmas!
