3 Months!

We met Kian 3 months ago today.... unbelievable. He was made for our family. From the beginning we knew a bit of his personality as our agency had met him in person and told us he was outgoing, active and social. All of these are understatements!

Kian loves being around people and has quickly warmed up to our dog Hoover.
His favorite person ever is his brother..... he would cry every morning when he left for daycare!

Having a big brother has really helped Kian adjust and try new things with only minimal hesitation.  He  follows him to a fault (hence the broken arm!). D is adjusting really well and (most) of the time enjoys having a little brother.

The past 3 months have been full of doctors appointments, evaluations and general trust building with us and Kian. We feel he is really starting to understand the "family" concept. If you have never adopted or read about adoption you might not think that is such a big deal - but it really is. We have a little guy who was born into our family and loved every minute of watching him discover, learn and develop. He has known since day 1 who mama and baba are (yes D refers to us as that now!) We also have a little guy who until 3 months ago lived in a different country, spoke a different language, ate different food and did not know us - he has been a blessing also! Watching him develop family, language and a new culture has been nothing short of amazing!
