Videos of Darya

I can finally post videos on Blogger! We have watched these videos countless times and they are absolute treasures to us to actually see Darya "in action". She is just so precious!!  They were both taken by families who adopted from her orphanage and they shared them with us.  The top one is the most recent one, taken around January of this year when she was 18 months old (I shared this one on FB a while back so some of you may have seen it already). The second one was when she was about 11 months old.  It is my understanding that most of her time has been spent in either that bouncy seat or the swing, (at least from what the families could see)....not being played with, read to, or snuggled.  It absolutely breaks my heart.  I know her physical needs are being met and they do take the kids outside everyday, but I hope and pray that she gets at least a little love from someone there, otherwise she's going to be overwhelmed by the onslaught of love she's shown when she gets home!! :-)  Here ya go:

  2. Nothing yet! I'm so anxious to hear something....anything!! I hope that they're translating our documents and that everything looks good. I can't wait to scoop Darya up and take her out of there!!

  5. How neat to be able to watch video of your sweet girl! The noise level in the groupa surprised me to hear. I think it's so sad that she spends her days just sitting around since our girls (yours & mine) are in one of the "better" orphanages (what a relative term that is!) and it makes me wonder what my girls will be like, too. Sigh... how I am praying that you and I will be heading to get our girls SOON!

    Darya is a cute peanut. I hope I can be there to take a family picture for you & Joel and that you can do the same for Charley & me with our girls!
