As you know we finally made it to Poland. Because of the delay we were set back one day. We had our meeting with the adoption officials Friday morning and it went well.
The first meeting was nothing less than amazing. Right when we walked in the door they grabbed our hands and led us up to see their cat and her kitten. We sat down with them and did puzzles and colored. They then asked if we would go outside and play with them. We ran, pushed them on a swing, ran, played with their balls, ran, played on a slide, ran, played in the sandbox, and ran. As you can see we ran a lot, they LOVE to run! The younger one has so much energy, she is full of life and loves to preform. She loves to dance and sign. She immediately took to Vito! The older one took a little longer to warm up to us. She is kind of quiet, very cautious but sweet as can be! When we came back in the afternoon, and when we drove up to the house they were waiting for us by the gate....our hearts melted. They were a lot more comfortable with us during the second visit....and like first visit we just had a ball playing with them.
Today we were able to visit them in the morning and the afternoon. During our morning visit they foster parents told them we were going to be their new mama and tata.....and when we came back in the afternoon they were calling us mama and tata! Talk about emotions.
What a wonderful two days. Here are some things we learned about them.
They love to wear skirts with tights.
The older one does not like bread and the younger one does not like potatoes
They love chocolate cookies, french fries, and the color pink
They love baths I even got to bathe them :)
The girls have spend most of their lives living with the same foster family. They were so welcoming...it is hard to put into words how at ease they made us feel. They are wonderful people and we are so grateful they have raised two beautiful girls! We are so thankful for them.
We are heartbroken to leave the girls but know they are in a wonderful place until we can return. We are also excited to get home and complete the paperwork so we can return ASAP!
We are in love!!!!
