One year ago today, Clarion and I made the journey to Vladivostok in the Russian Far East to meet our son, Andrei for the first time. We had been there three years earlier to adopt his older brothers. How awesome it was to return to the place where we made so many memories for our family and to see two very dear friends again. We also had the joy of being there with the Bridges whom we had gotten to know through blogging during our first adoption. Can't believe it's been a year and that Andrei has been home seven months now. Time sure flies!
