Papa is crying happy tears!

Meet Sara! We met her this morning via iChat (web cam)! What a flawless child - just like her papa - I knew she had my genes! LOL

Matt & Jo have had her about 12 hours now - getting ready for bed now - and not one tear! She is adjusting well. They want to thank you for all your prayers. The prayers made a huge difference in Sara's adjustment!

Matt & Jo said when Sara saw them she had a big smile on her face - she recognized them from the pictures they had sent her ahead of time! Sara was carrying a photo album they had sent her ahead of time!

Hello: I have been following your blog through Pete Olson's page. We have two children adopted through Russia. Reading about your new little one brings back great memories. Congratulations, and may God continue to bless you all.

ZK - thanks for stopping by - I left a comment on your blog. Matt & Jo also have a son from Russia. They went to Siberia to get him 9 years ago!

By the way, the very last picture isn't showing up for me. =(

Unless it's supposed to be a box with a red x in it???!!

Crossview - it sounds like your computer has a 'block' on opening some attachments. look for small blue writing that says 'download photos' or something like that on the message heading.
