Today has finally come! Our adoption process, the lawyers, the traveling, the fear, is ALL gone because our son is coming home today!!!! Now we are just excited and anxious. His room is finished and I just keep imagining him sleeping in it and running around in it. He's a fast little tyke lol. 

I am scared about how he will transition to life from the orphanage to life home. We were able to visit him at the orphanage but that has been his home for the past 17 months. I don't want him to feel afraid here. He was always happy when we visited him but it was in the place familiar to him. I know we should expect him to be a little afraid and confused. I'm going to try to not give myself any panic attacks between now and the time he comes home and any time after that. I don't even want to start crying because I don't want him to start crying.


I am crying right now, though.

Thank you! He is 17 months old. The orphanage director made it seem like he will be a problem child for the next couple :/

Thank you! He is from here (we live in Russia). I'm definitely expecting the first days to be hard. I just wish they didn't have to be :(

He was in an orphanage. I guess you guys in the US call it a home? Lol.
