We got to meet our little Bella yesterday! She is just precious! She calls me Mama (with some prompting, of course) but is very “afraid” of Kevin and his goatee. It is actually kind of funny. She will look right at him, touch her own chin and say “byoos” (phonetic spelling) “byoos, byoos” or translated says, “afraid, afraid, afraid!” She backs up from him and clasps her little hands behind her back so that she will not have to touch that thing! Needless to say, she has not seen many men, especially ones with white fur on their faces!
Finally here are a few photos:
Here is a photo of our very first meeting at 10:00 am, Tuesday, June 23, 2009. She is clutching a little doll we gave her while she sports a big, beautiful Ukrainian bow!
Best be getting to bed. It’s 12:20 am here and we are dead tired! I will write more details tomorrow and post more photos.
