Happy Anniversary!

Right at this very moment, exactly one year ago, the girls and I landed in Green Bay, WI -- the good old USA. We were so excited to be home. They are having such a hard time believing that it one a year ago that they arrived in America. They said that when they had nothing to do and were living in the orphanage that time couldn't go by fast enough. It's amazing how things have changed for them.

Tonight the girls had their final basketball game of the season. I think Ana likes a boy and Dasha just gets taller by the minute. A year ago, these girls were shocked by their new environment and didn't speak a word of English -- boy what a year can do. We have two beautiful, bright and caring girls and are very fortunate to have found them to be a part of our family.

Until next time,
Heather

Congratulations! How are they doing at English reading/writing/speaking? At 8 months O is doing well at reading and writing, but still struggling with speaking except with close friends and family (she is timid). Other than that we feel she is doing amazingly well too.
