Today is Christmas for you, Alina, and we are celebrating by mailing the first document to your country to let them know we are coming for you!
Your Daddy and I are literally running to get everything done that is being asked of us before we can travel and bring you home.
We are making progress every single day.
We are so excited to travel, to meet you and learn all about your country.
There are also lots and lots of other people here in the United States that are waiting patiently to meet you and to love you :).
You are in our hearts and plans today and all days.
Merry Christmas, sweet little one. We'll be there soon...
**Christmas in Alina's country is celebrated January 7 according to the Gregorian calendar, as in most of other Orthodox Christian countries**
