Closing time...

Around this time last year, we were getting ready to head to meet Veronika and Gavyn for the first time. We flew out on June 5th, 2012. I remember it like yesterday, wondering if we had everything we needed, and praying like mad that Veronika and Gavyn would be ok.
I had a main blog that I had been using, but due to trolls I decided that I would make a separate blog that I could set to private so those of you who have become like family to us could follow along.
As we approach a year anniversary of meeting Veronika and Gavyn we feel like trying to keep up two blogs has just become too much. We will still keep blogging but will continue on our family blog (the main blog that we had from the start).
We invite you to follow along at OUR FAMILY BLOG .
So many exciting things will be coming up soon!
Veronika will be turning TWO in July, we have a lot of things we will be doing this summer, and we will also be celebrating ONE YEAR HOME!!
 Hope to see you there!

Veronika and Gavyn were baptized on Pentecost Sunday

It was a beautiful service and Veronika and Gavyn did so well. The only time we had any complaints was when Veronika was getting the sign on the cross upon her forehead (she is going through stranger anxiety and does not welcome others outside of the family touching her.) Beyond that, they did wonderfully. We are so proud of them and love watching them grow each and every day!
