This is as close as we have come to a family portrate.
On July 7th we finalized Aubrey's adoption. The girls looked so cute in their matching dresses but I couldn't get a picture of them together.
Jyly seems to have a little hoarding problem!
I am a horrible blogger and I freely admit it. The problem is not that I have 5 children under the age of 5 to keep me busy everyday. The problem is that I am friends with most of my blogger friends on facebook. Social networking is addictive and now I have joined the Russian version of Facebook.
I joined www.vkontakte.com mostly out of curiosity. A part of me wished that when I put Jyly's birth mothers name in I might just find her. I knew the chances were slim but I gave it a try. Unfortunately I came up with nothing. I did reconnect with one of our Russian exchange students. In the future I do plan on doing a birth family search. I have an address and I am going to send a letter but in light of recent events in the Osh region I may never find anyone.
Jyly is now 4 1/2 and has been with us for 2 1/2 years. She is tall. skinny and beautiful. Oh did I mention intelligent? If she is not studying the Atlas, she is reading every book about the human body she can find. Well, she's not quite reading yet but she's almost there. On August 23rd, she will go to Headstart fulltime. I'm excited for her since she hasn't shown any excitement yet.
