Home One Month Today!

At around 12:30am on December 30, we pulled into the driveway of our house. I have never been so happy to be home ever! Our world was just about to return to "normal" (yes... the new normal of our family) and Maia's "normal" world had changed forever.

 Here is Maia at the airport in Kyiv with Olga, just before we went through the security checkpoint. 

And a few pics of our girl over the couple days.
We're so happy God chose us to be her parents! Love that smile!

On our way to church this morning.

Just hanging out
Maia's first chocolate chip pancake - SOOO good! Yes, a girl after mom's own heart (and her pancakes).

Mark and I are thinking that maybe Maia will be an architect
Thanks Aunt Sandi - I LOVE the big paper to draw on!

Maia really is adjusting well to her new life. She's speaking about 12 words of English (when she wants to - lol!) and understands a great deal! She seems to be bonding and attaching to us, as well as charming those she meets. I'll try to post some milestones in the next day or so.

Happy homecoming anniversary, sweetie - we love you!
