Last Russian Adoption Fee!!!!

We've had our visit.  We shared the growth of our son--physically, educationally, theologically.  We have taken some final pictures of Aidan and Kristin. We provided more pictures than necessary.  It's been signed. We paid our final $10.00 for a Virginia apostille.  It's on it's way to be apostilled.  What have we done??????

WE HAVE COMPLETED OUR THREE YEAR POST PLACEMENT VISIT AND REPORT!!!!!

We are officially finished with Russia!  I can't believe it.  It seems so weird!  Kind of surreal, ya know?  Okay, I know we're not finished with Russia. . .Aidan is a Russian citizen.  But, we no longer have to submit reports about how things are going!  4 1/2 years after we started and 3 years (almost) after we came home with our son, we are finally done. . .

Here are some pictures of Aidan and Kristin, a few of which will wind up on our wall where all special pictures end up:

And this is how we celebrated the end of an era:
