  5. Yay! Happy one-year-home anniversary!

    Paula, your family is so beautiful. I can't believe it was over a year ago that we were all figuring out this Ukrainian adoption thing... anxiously awaiting travel dates in a chat room. :) And here we are all settled in and celebrating one year home. So fun. :)
