At 4:00am EST today, it was the 4-year anniversary of when we nervously walked into a courtroom in Ekaterinburg, Russia to answer questions about why we felt we were fit to be Roman's parents. One hour later, our petition to adopt Roman was approved; we walked out of that courtroom sweating bullets, but with huge grins on our faces. We were finally parents.
Today is also Charlie's due date. And I am so glad he has already been in our lives for 10 weeks; although the circumstances were not pleasant, I can't imagine him arriving in any other less-dramatic way.
And now I reveal to you the first official photo of the brothers, taken on their very special day.
