Parent Quote

Charlie_BabyWe were overjoyed and filled with happiness when we first met Charlie in Russia at the Baby House. It was a cold day in December, and he had been outside, so he was wrapped up completely. We were so happy when we saw his sweet face and knew we had found our precious baby boy. On adoption day when he spoke his first words "Ma Ma", he melted our hearts. We couldn't wait to get him home so he could meet his sister and the rest of our family.
