Now introducing.........Polina Helaine Wills!!!

Gotcha day was a success! We picked up her new adoption certificate and birth certificate and applied for her Russian passport, which we pick up tomorrow. We picked up a few cakes for the orphanage staff and headed over. The earlier snow/ice storm couldnt stop us from picking up our little princess!

We picked her up and she didnt cry the entire car ride back to the hotel. She was really enjoying and amazed at the sites of the drive. We made it to the hotel, and she has been playing with her new toys (a music instrument and russian stuffed animals that speak Russian). Cant believe today is here and we are loving every minute of it! Some pictures for folks to enjoy.......

What a beautiful little strawberry blonde!!! She is just gorgeous!! Yeah.....she is finally all yours!! How wonderful!!!!! Can't wait to hear more of how she is adjusting. Regarding the bottles, our Matthew was not taking bottles and we did not go backwards. When we picked him up he was drinking out of a tea cup. We had to teach him how to drink from a sippy cup but he caught on quickly!!! How old is Polina? Ohhhhh....she is just adorable!!! So excited for you guys!

I didn't realize until a few days ago that you were adopting your beauty from the same baby home that Aubree came from. I am weeping right now looking at your daughter. She is beautiful, and it took me back a few months to our time there waiting for our little one. What an adventure. We are so happy for you!!!!!!
