Falling In Love

I was wondering what to share tonite and decided to go thru our pictures of our first trip to Bulgaria when we met Gracie and Andrew....Here is a picture collection of me falling in love with this sweet and precious one....
I loved you from the first time I saw your face and your tiny little body... I love how you prefer the left side of the person holding you and to sit sort of high up ( even though it is harder to hold you).. I love that you have preferences....

I love how you want to suck your thumb and will try your hardest to .....even though you know you will get slapped for it after we leave... you know how much comfort you get from it and kept trying .....















I love how you explore your face with your fingers...even how you play with your eyes...those unusual and very blue eyes....
I love your deep, black, curly, thick hair and even the way you smell. I love your tiny, little feet and so can't wait to see you eat and gain weight.












I love how you kick your foot when I would slow down to make me go faster... I love your sounds...the air blowing... even your "niece" Ava knows what sound you make when you are happy and she does it all the time to make her "Nana" smile......
















I love your smile and your laughter....especially when you knew you were in your daddy's arms... I even cry for the time when we will hear that again....














































I love how content you are holding your daddy's hand and sucking your thumb.... Oh my "Danko" as your little orphanage mates shouted when we passed them we are coming back soon and we love you.

He is such a precious child! Praying you are able to bring him home VERY VERY soon! Can't wait to see him healthy and well loved!


Makes me think of Shawnee [whose name we have changed to Tavi :)] ... and I just can't wait to hold her!

Oh I can't wait until you get him home. I am haunted of thinking about his treatment, every day, day in and day out.... waiting to be loved.
He must wonder what happened to those wonderful people who came and loved him for a short time. I know he will remember you when he hears your voices once again. It will be a great day!

I LOVE Doncho. I think about him every day, and he is our screensaver! Oh what a beautiful boy, you are SO lucky to be his mama. We are adopting a little boy from Ukraine (#7) but the first adoption for us. I will continue to follow your family, I told my husband I want to be like you guys! God Bless you.
