|Message||Congrats on you two beautiful angels. We are looking forward to traveling sometime (hopefully soon) to Kazakhstan for our angel. We are in the same situation as you with wanting to adopt two children. We are wanting them to be under 2 years old and it's difficult to find a sibling group where both are under 2. I doubt if we go back after this trip since we have ran into so many problems with our agency. I haven't read much of your entries yet, but look forward to reading them when I get a chance. I would love to talk to you about your trip's sometime. |

|Message||Hi Bill & Marie,|
I don't know how I stumbled across this blog but I am glad I did. I returned from Aqtobe, KZ at the end of December, 2006 (actually the 29th), with my daughter. We have been home for 7 months and already I am starting to think about going back for a second child.
Your blog made me certian that I will go back for a son.
Thanks for sharing,

|Message||Bill & Marie,|
Have just spent all afternoon reading your wonderful story about adopting Gianna. We laughed and cried. We will read about Emily tommorow too.
We have just started down the road to adoption and have been researching all the different countries. Having briefly weighed the pros and cons of many countries, I think Kazakhstan is a front runner at the moment.
Weather we are lucky enough to become adoptive parents or not and whichever country we go to, your story has been very inspirational and given us an insight into what to expect.
Thank you and regards to your whole family.

It takes VERY special people to do what you have done...and you are special. I'm so happy everything is going well. I can't imagine the excitement you felt when the time came near for Emily to arrive. God bless all of you!|
