Happy Birthday

Today is our little guy's second birthday. Initially we had hoped that he'd be home with us in time for his birthday; guess that just wasn't meant to be. When we saw Andrey last, I didn't ask the orphanage whether or not they'd have a little birthday cake for him. I didn't want to hear their response if the answer was "no". I mean, that's alot to ask, considering they have many kids to care for and not alot of resources available to them.

You can bet that he'll have a homemade birthday cake next year. Maybe even a present or two as well as plenty of birthday hugs and kisses. I'm sure he'll also be fussed over by friends and family since it will be his first birthday home with us.

Things will be very different for Andrey in a few short months. We just have to be patient and stay focused on getting him home safely. It can't come soon enough. Happy 2nd birthday, my love!
