Photos from our second visit ...




Today was our second visit with Andrey. It was fantastic! He was shy at first, but soon he was taking Kim by the hand and leading her around the grounds outside the orphanage. Next, we brought out the xylophone again and he went to work. Then we brought out a set of plastic play cup thingies that fit inside each other, and the three of us had a ball. He really enjoyed picking leaves etc. off the ground and putting them into different cups, then stacking the cups. When he was able to stack all of them together you should've seen the grin on his face! He was definitely more open and comfortable with us today. He smiled a lot! We'll post more about today later. Now we're getting ready to take the Metro down to Red Square.

What a character this sweet kid is. I totally agree with Roy, Christine, and Bronwyn, this little fellow does look like Kim. Or, possibly, just like that picture of little John that you have in your den
