By Popular Demand...

Didn't think you'd hear from me so soon, did you? Little Tatiana's admiring fans demand some answers... so I don't want to risk a fiery hoard at my door...

She's a petite little thing. Since she was born a month premature, she's small for her age. I think she's also a smaller framed girl. Thankfully for her sake, she won't inherit the Clarkson curse - long torso, short legs.

On her birthday, her caregivers had put her in an outfit that I brought as part of the donations. It was a 12 month outfit and it fit her well. So likely when she gets home, she'll be between a 12 - 18 month size. My friends who have adopted also mention that typically when the little ones get home, they have a growth spurt after adjusting to the nutritional benefits of products here.

So that's the latest update. I went back to work today - catching up on the weeks missed emails and gossip. For some reason it has been harder coming home and getting adjusted to the time, than it was when I got there. Maybe because I was so excited and jumped into everything right away. Hope you are all well. Thanks for the love and support!

You're so good at keeping up with the blogging. I haven't even updated ours since we got to vlad. Have you caught up on sleep yet. I agree, it IS harder coming back than going.

Keep busy and the days will fly by. Next thing you know we'll all be in Vlad again, together naturally.

I found it harder to adjust when we came back home from trip one also. I think your body is also adjusting to the fact that there's a little certain someone out there waiting for you!! SHe sounds like a doll!

I hope a court date comes sooner than expected for you. I'll eagerly be following along.
Did it seem like there was many toddler girls available while at the orphanage in Vlad?

Patience is a virtue....right?

Traveling East is always worse for me than traveling West.
