We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

2nd Day Driving to see Alisa

Well, the snow has decided to assert its dominance.  TONS of snow has fallen in the last day.  This made driving out to Alisa's orphanage quite difficult.  We had white out conditions several times, the road was covered in snow and the driving was very slow.  This made for a long and stressful journey.  But also stunningly beautiful.

We are supposed to drive out again today but I am not sure if we will be able to make it due to the conditions.  I hope that was not the last time we will see Alisa this trip.

I LOVE the little log cabins in the villages.  They are such a refreshing change from the massive cement apartment complexes of the city.  It is nice to see the culture survive.  Here are some of the homes in the village surrounding Alisa's orphanage:

Aren't they adorable??  Finally after a very long drive we arrived at Alisa's orphanage!

PS: Thank you for the prayers.  Kevin recoved quickly from his illness and was able to come to see the girls.  But now I have it and envy your prayers.

    These pictures makes me wish there was snow in Seattle.
