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.

Dec. 11 - Gotcha Day

it's been a year since we got custody of Vanie. I can't believe it... and yet it feels as if we've been a family since he was born.
I honestly don't want to relive that day - i was so stressed and afraid i felt sick the entire day. After a long questioning session (me more than Jason), we were given the rights to become the parents of Yvan Alexander... we got him that night from the orphanage (after a long 4 ½ hours drive through the snowed in mountains).

We didn’t necessarily celebrate the day but we will start doing so soon. I think, Vanie will understand and appreciate it much more once he is 3 or 4 years old. Right now, it’s all about Santa…
