Loving Alina, Forever Ours
One year ago today, Chris and I stood in a tiny courtroom in Ukraine as we petitioned to adopt a little girl abandoned at birth because she has Down syndrome.
We knew in our hearts she was meant to be ours, and crossed the ocean for her.
Today we celebrate Alina Caroline, our little cherry blossom, who officially joined our family on April 16, 2010.
**I have two more posts planned for today, one with pictures and video from Days 2, 3 and 4 at the orphanage, and another with more details from court and day 5 in region. Check back later for those if you are interested :)...
