Igor at 3 1/2 years old at Pechory Orphan House.

I have waited three and a half years to say this.... Today, Igor has been part of our family longer than he was in the orphanage! Three and a half years ago a Russian judge granted us custody of Igor. We traveled from Pskov to Moscow on an over night train. In Moscow we went to the US Embassy to submit our final paperwork and then we flew home!
This is my favorite picture from the train ride.

We love you Igor!
