(sorry one day late, internet trouble) Today was the big moment we have been waiting for 15months now. He is the sweetest and funniest little boy! We were sitting on a couch outside the director's office when a groupa started coming up the stairs and Yulia, our facilitator, and I looked at each other at the same time and said" I think that's Vanya", he was the 2nd child coming up the stairs (by himself), so she asked one the caretakers if that was Vanya and she said yes. So they told him that we were mama and papa and he went right into my arms (yes, the tears were flowing) and then hugged Tom and never let go!
We then went into their music session and he was just a hoot! He had the 3 of us laughing. He's got a personality. Once the session was over, they gave us about 1.5hours with him in the music room, while they did paperwork. We had a blast! Paperwork is in motion and we are waiting on our court hearing! We just can't wait to get him home!
Enjoy the pictures and video!
