We are In Moscow

We are in Moscow. Anya had her first plane ride today from Novosibirsk to Moscow. She did great!!! We are in Moscow on the last leg of our trip. Over the next two days we will be going to the US Embassy completing her immigration papers.

The last few days in Novosibirsk were spent getting her passport, visa, as well as other small things that needed to be taken care of. Here are a few pictures that we took in Novosibirsk.
This is a picture of our hotel.All of the buildings in Novosibirsk are old and run down. It is not what we are used to in America.

This picture was taken in front of a fountain across the street from our hotel. Anya loves to go strolling outside. She does not talk yet, but whenever I try to get her out of her stroller when we come in, she grunts at me.

Anya feeding herself...

Right now, she is eating baby food. We are too scared to feed her much variety yet, because of the fact that we do not have a good understanding of her allergies. I would so love to get her to a McDonald's and give her some french fries (mmm, I know she would love them),
but for now we are sticking with a conservative diet.

Having fun in the bath!!!!
The rash in these pictures is looking much better and her
ankles are looking better also.

This may be my only picture of her with a bow in her hair.
We are having a hard time with the bows, but I have a
good feeling that when we get home Mommy
is going to win the war of the bows!

Anya and daddy skyping with family

And tonight in our Moscow hotel....





Our sweet little girl is sleeping.

Sleep tight.

Good night.


  1. My kids were so excited that she is finally in your arms...her picture is still on our fridge reminding us to pray.
    Sleep tight precious girl, you have so many people celebrating you!

  2. She is the cutest little girl! i just want to reach through the screen and give her a big squeeze! She looks so happy and I believe that she's going to fit in, so well with your other kiddos! She'll probably be happier when she's with them, as she's used to being around other children. I'm so happy for your family! Praying that everything goes smoothly and you'll be home soon! I can't wait to see her with her new siblings. You are Blessed! Hugs ~ Jo

  3. precious! Beautiful Anya-beautiful smile! Praying for an uneventful and safe trip home!
