My husband and I (we live in Belgium) adopted a 10 month old boy in Arkalyk in october of 2007.
By accident I discovered your blog which I read very enthousiasticly.
I recognized so many people and children for the orphenage in Arkaluk during your second adoption.
While reading your blog I read on page 11 following text
"A caregiver came out with the happiest little man you'd ever see. He was
probably about five months old. He sat there a laughed his chubby checks off.
Unfortunately I dont't know why but he's not available for adoption".
And then I saw the picture of our little boy we adopted 7 months after you left.
What a nice surprise !!!!
I seem that at the time you were there, our son, Dario (Zhanibeck), was not available for adoption because he was younger than 6 months.
If you would like, I can sent you a picture of him now, you will easily recognize him.
He is doing very well and still is that happy boy you met a that time.
Thank you for sharing your 2 adoption stories, it was nice reading !!!
I hope your family and especially your 2 girls from Kazachstan are doing fine.

|Message||I have enjoyed your story of your adopting process. I would love to adopt a child and your story has given me a better understanding of what you encounter through out process. I feel for all the little children who never feel the love that you have given to your wonderful little "Angel".|

Do you remember your southern family? How are you guys? I was just looking back on some memories and ran across some very precious people. I am sorry that we have not stayed in touch. Life just took a hold and I feel like we fell off the wagon. You guys were the greatest and we will always cherish you all. God Bless You!
Love, Gene, Lisa, Katya
