This is more for my benefit than any loyal readers I may have!!! We went to my nephew's 4th Birthday party yesterday... who would have thought the scrawny, sickly and sad little boy my sister brought home from Russia at 8 months old would be 4 someday and be such an natural, crazy, fun, wild and enjoyable member of our family. He is my nephew in all ways, being a blood relative would not change my feelings for him in the slightest, I am sure. But, as my sister and I hoped and dreamed when I was pregnant with Jack and she was waiting to take Sean (then Vladimir) home... the boys became fast friends. Sometimes my eyes water and I have to pretend I am not getting misty at the thought of how many miles and cultures and red tape between Sean and our family that had to be overcome to bring this day into being. Enjoy!
