Our adoption representative

Ever since getting to Perm and meeting our representative and other people in the hotel, the Ministry of Education and everyone at the orphanage,we feel so much more comfortable and at ease about being here. Our Rep, as well as everyone we have met these last couple of days, has been great. Our rep is a really nice 30 year old guy who really knows his stuff. He has been very accomodating, helpful and on top of everything regarding the adoption. He really knows his away around, knows the right people, is very confident when talking to the different officials, and great at translating simultaneouly when the officials were talking to us in Russian. Thanks goodnes for that! Yesterday the orphanage director was talking a hundred miles an hour and it seemed as if she was repeating the same word over and over. He stay right on top of it had to be exhausting for him having to do this all day but he seems to enjoy what he does and is genuinely concern about us, the baby and the adoption. I don't think I could say enough good things about him. We are so blessed to have someone like him guiding us through this process, especially being so far away from home. I think I will be asking him today if I can take his picture to post it here. I want my little man to see the person responsible for bringing him to us.
