Break through on the last Visit!!!

Yesterdays visit was awesome! We had a major break through with Aidan. When he arrived in the playroom, he didn't whimper or cry as he usually does (it only lasts about a minute when he does) and he came right over to us. This time, we left the things we usually bring in the backpack and he came over and started taking everything out himself. All of a sudden he looked up at us, smiled and started laughing. He was this way the entire two hour visit. It was so wonderful!

Aidan really connected with Pat, too. The two of them are going to be terrors in sneakers and jeans. Let me tell you. But, I love it!

When we returned to the hotel, we arranged our change to a suite for today at noon. We will now be in Room 450. Our driver and coordinator will pick us up about 5:00 this afternoon, which is the time our ten day wait ends, and we will head back to Sosnovoborsk for our final trip. We have packed the bags for the move and arranged the backpack with the clothes we will put on Aidan. He will wear this cute LLBean shirt and jeans, just like Papa's. I can't wait for that picture! We also have to bring the snow jacket, pants, hat, boots and mittens. . .well, the Russians like to make sure the babies are warm. . .

I can't wait to share pictures with you all. Hopefully, the Wi Fi will work tomorrow and we'll be able to do so. He is an absolute doll. You'll love his smile!

Tuesday we will get Aidan's passport and then head back to Moscow on Wednesday morning.

More tomorrow. Keep us in your prayers and we transition to a three person family!

Stacy and Pat. . .and in a few hours Aidan, too!

Hey there,
By now you have Aidan in your family. I hope that he makes the transition without too much fuss... its got to be scary for him, change in his routine, change in his surroundings, change in people he knows... don't be upset if he takes a while to adjust, he will get used to the new way of doing things eventually... it may take some time though... I pray for a quick adjustment and for a happy family with the three of you. You are about to become instant parents and you need to be gentle with yourselves also... don't freak out... its a learning proccess for you guys too...

In all things, pray, and pray without ceasing,

Love and hugs to you all,
Allison and Robin
