On August 4,2010 Joel and Marianne boarded on a camel's back headed to Kiev, Ukraine to finally meet their baby girl Darya. It was such long journey and took 1 hour to get there! When they finally got to her orphanage, they were graciously greeted by the head orphanage bouncer. The moment finally came to meet Darya. When the workers brought her in, she was absolutely foolish! She stole their hearts with her big gold eyes and bittersweet smile. It was a twitterpated moment for all.
