I know...I know.. everyone has been waiting for this post... and let me just start off by stating... that so have we! We have been wanting to write this post for so long!!...and then the internet didn't work!
Ok, so let's just say that although we may be just slightly biased at this point, today we met the most beautiful little girl!!!!!!!!! We can't share much information at this point for obvious reasons, but we just wanted to let everyone know that we have just met the newest member of our family :)) and that we've asked to begin the bonding process.
For now, we'll just call her "Mlle O". She is a year and a half and of Russian ethnicity. We met briefly with her and she stole our hearts. Yannik confirmed to everyone that she was indeed the one! He gave her the big two thumbs up. We will be meeting with her 2 hours a day, from 12-2pm. The director of the orphanage is allowing Yannik to come along. He is still charming the ladies here :))
We met Mlle O just has she was going for her nap, so she's a trooper. She was pretty unsure of what to make of the three of us, which everyone thought was a good sign. Now, we just have to reassure her that we are indeed ok :)) (She was probably thinking to herself...now who are these three goofy characaters who just keep beaming at me!) She did come in my arms with some coaxing and a cute fuzzy rabbit. She was so sweet and timid and has the most amazing eyes...our hearts just melted.
Thanks for all of you who encouraged us and told us not to give up.....She's def. worth the wait.
PS - She's def. a "pretty in pink" girl. Very tiny and feminine.
