Andrey's Birthday Video by Andre G.

This is a must watch. It literally took my breath away and I cannot wait to get ahold of this little guy!

Happy Birthday, Andrey (Cooper)!!!

Today is my little man's 5th birthday. I know he didn't get a cake or presents or even a "Happy Birthday", but I promise that won't happen again. I feel so bad that we were not able to get him in time to celebrate this important date. I want him to know that he is loved, he is wanted, and his life will be celebrated from this day forth! Happy Birthday, Big Man!

This is a picture of Cole when I first met him....I was overwhelmed by his inability to do...well....anything. He was like a little dishrag that they handed me.....

This is Cole after being home 6 months. This is what love can do. I show you all this to let you know that Cooper may not be what you or I or anyone thinks he should be, but he will grow and shine like the star he is! I cannot wait to posts pics of him after I overdose him with love!


Yay! We finally have a travel date and an appointment with the adoption authority for big man Coop! Our appointment is January 16th, so we will need to be in country by at least the 14th or the 15th. I feel like we have been waiting forever~we are just thankful that we got a date, Cooper is still there waiting for us and that we will hopefully get in, get out, and things will be smooth. Off to book airline tickets!
