Where does the time go? I've received a couple of new comments in the last few months, so someone is finding us. I can't believe anyone still reads the blog, since I haven't updated it in so long!
I'm always interested in hearing from anyone who adopted from baby house #2, Almaty, especially. So many things I didn't ask or get to see, and one day Josie may want to know more than I can give her. So, for anyone reading this who adopted from the same baby house ...
Did you get to see, or photograph, any of your child's living areas or caregivers? Everything was very secretive during my visits ... everyone seemed to tiptoe around the when and where we would visit. I'd love to hear more "behind the scenes" details.
On the last day, I took gifts, candy and food as special thank you and assumed I'd get a chance to see/meet her caregivers, but the director had someone "important" in her office and we were sent off very quickly. Maigul, who managed the visits and knew all the kids, was great. She let me photograph her with Josie and was very sad when we left. It's good to be able to show Josie someone who loved her before me : )
