Video--Gotcha Day

While we were in Ukraine, Chris took several short videos with his Blackberry.

I hope to share more of our trip, of what we did and saw while we were there. But as I was looking over the videos Chris uploaded onto my computer last night, the following seems like a good place to start, even though it is not at the beginning of our trip.

It is the beginning of Alina's new life.

The day we took Alina out of the orphanage...forever:

  16. I have been following your blogs for about a year when my little cousin, Maggie Rae was born. I think you follow her blog "Miss Maggie Rae" Just wanted to say thank you for your blogs. Bridgets blog helped them in many ways! Congratulations on little Alina and I look forward to keeping up with your blog!

  17. Oh my gosh, these bring back soo many memories! Ahh! It is such an amazing experience, isn't it Lisa?! You don't really understand until you experience it for yourself, and now watching these videos ... it seems like so long ago that we did this, even though it was just a year and a half ago. Love it.
