I have been feebly studying out of this book.
Is it even possible to learn a foreign language from a book???
As I was working on the alphabet, I thought of a friend request I had received on Facebook that I wondered about (but couldn't read because it was in Russian). I looked up all the letters with corresponding sounds...and it was this person called Robey Michelle!
That is one of the names our oldest (N1) was considering for her "American name"...well, not in that order but we can talk about that in the future...anyway...it made this mama's heart happy.
It has been 7 months since we started this journey and I worried that N1 and N2 were giving up on us. This was just an affirmation that they are, like us, anticipating and dreaming of our future together.
They know we are coming.
Although I won't be proficient in Russian by June (yes, June!) when we plan on making our first trip, I am studying up on their language and their country. (It is not Russia by the way....Americans cannot adopt from Russia.) There is certainly preparation and anticipation about this adoption on both sides of the ocean!
