  1. Lisa,
    I am so overjoyed for you and your family! To be able to watch your journey has been moving and inspirational. You and your family are making this world a better & brighter place! Alina, is so beautiful and I have never met Bridget in person, but they do look alike in pictures! Thinking of you! Andrea

  2. Oh my gosh, if that's not the most touching thing ever. Watching Alina look at the world outside the orphanage for the first time, not really knowing that her world has just become so much brighter and more hopeful. Thank you so much for paving the way on this amazing adoption journey. You are and always will be my inspiration!

  6. I really don't know what to say, this was so touching to watch, that little girl has no idea what kind of wonderful life she is going to live and with so much love.

  7. Very poignant moment! Especially when she put her hand under her chin as she looked out the window with the Russian lullaby in the background. It gave me chills and tears in my eyes. The life she's leaving behind in Zap. is one she'll never have to go back to-Praise God!

  8. That gave me goosebumps and make me happy and sad at the same time!

    The memories rush back in. The emotions are so over powering it's hard to describe.

    I left part of my heart in Zaporozhye, the whole experience was life changing for us.

    The train ride sort of symbolizes much of it for me...the journey, the coming into something brand new and magical....the leaving, putting it behind and starting the new journey....new life.

    Unless you experience it, this is probably hard to understand. But it's something I'll NEVER forget.

  9. I just found your blog and boy am I lucky to have found it at the best of times!! I love seeing Alina outside the orphanage and enjoying everything around her. The way she is looking out that window on the train is priceless!! She is a beautiful little girl and congratulations on a successful adoption. Someday I hope I can get my husband on board to follow in your footsteps.
