We had to wait for our final paperwork to come on Thursday, and we were exhausted from the past two days, so we spend the day inside bonding while waiting for paperwork and visitors in the afternoon/evening.
I taught Polina how to tickle her Papa. This was loads of fun. He is very ticklish!
|He couldn't take it anymore - so he gave in to request to "go up!"|
After they tired of that, it was time to "walk" around the house in her warm, comfy Russian boots!
After nap, we changed Polina and "Princessa Katya's" clothes and put on their matching coats.
And then our first guest arrived. Unfortunately, I am not able to post pictures with her. She helped Polina and she wants to be able to help other kiddos. So for the sake of those kiddos, she must remain anonymous. Sad. True. This woman was my sanity during the whole process of the adoption. But more than that, she was someone stable for my princess over the years and through the transition from the baby house to the orphanage. I cried when she left. I cried uncontrollably. I love this woman and will always be indebted to her. Without her, we wouldn't have Polina and Polina wouldn't be who she is!

|The light Alyona brought for Polina was a great hit!|
