I should explain the name of the blog “Little Temujin”.
Our little one is not the typical blue eyed and blond Russian kid. Actually, he has big brown eyes, long lashes and brown (seems curly) hair. He is definitely mixed but we are not sure what races. So, in absence of a true family tree, we decided that he is a distant relative to the legendary Genghis Khan whose original name was Temujin.

“Home Alone”

Ok, not really home and not really alone. There are a few families here and they are all great. Leanna and Scott even invited me for spaghetti dinner which was great. Thank you, Leanna. (Actually, I think there are a few more families here that I haven’t even seen or met so I only know 5 or 6 of them)

So Jason is officially gone. Anya picked him up around 1 PM today and drove him to the airport. He must be on the plane from Seoul to LA at this point. Have a safe trip, babe, love you and miss you already.

We attempted to take Vanie’s passport picture today and I can tell you it was a disaster. He cried and screamed during every attempt so Anya had to give up. We will try it one more time on Monday (last chance before applying for his passport).

Leanna’s little boy (6 ½ yrs old – I have to make sure I don’t forget the ½ - he points it out every time I say he is 6) kept me company for a while tonight until he got bored and there was nothing good on TV.

I will post pictures of the families we met there later on. Ok, half a day alone down, another 7 to go before we leave for Moscow and only 1 day until Vanie officially becomes our son.
