Two years ago today!

Two years ago today, we came home from Ukraine with two new members of our family. It has certainly been a journey for all of us. Learning how to speak and write english. Being in a family that really loves them. Getting a lot of new friends at school and church. Taking up new interests like, skiing, sledding, water skiing, jet skiing, wake boarding, piano, break dance, soccer (of course), biking, driving, chores, getting good grades in school; which is the last thing on their list of liking to do! It's been an emotional roller coaster these past few years. We have learned a lot about ourselves, and what we are capable of. Mostly we learned how to be a lot more patient and to love unconditionally. I just look at them sometimes, and it amazes me that they haven't been with us all of their lives.

They are such handsome boys. We are so glad that we got to know them last summer.
