I've come to your site via Mumsnet classics, and had to say your son is absolutely beautiful! I hope you are both well and happy x

I was so happy to stumble across your web site.
I had begun to lose hope as all the adoption agencies I came across were US based and couldn't point me in the right direction.I am so pleased to come across somebody from the UK who has adopted from Khazakstan.....I would love it if you wouldn't mind contacting me and pointing me in the right direction as my husband and I would like to start the adoption process...bless you my angel for writing your web site....All my best Wishes Angelaxxx

Sue your site is wonderful. I laughed and cried and thoroughly enjoyed reading the whole thing. I think you and your Mum sound like great people to know. I hope you are having tons of fun with Daniel. My husband and I are preparing to start our adoption journey. I appreciated your insight into the different feelings you had. Such as you having to bond and all the other emotions you went through. Thank you again I wish you all the love you can hold, Lucy

You are such a wonderful inspiration. I cannot thank you enough for sharing. My husband and I have just started our Kaz journey. We are excited and nervous. I keep telling myself…. “If it’s to be it will be” AND I take one day at a time. I can only hope that I will have your faith and your sense of humor when the going gets ‘tough’.

Thanks Again

I stumbled upon your blog, as many "waiting adoptive parents do", and I have been reading for an hour. I have tears streaming down my face. You are so funny and so brutally honest and i loved hearing about Daniel, your Russian, and your "Mum"
we are in the final states of dossier prep (we live in Florida) and waiting on a couple more things to be able to send it off. I loved reading your story and God bless you and Daniel. You are BOTH so lucky. thanks for making me cry. :)

Hi Sue,
I have tried to email you but apparently I have the wrong email address. So I'll have to ask you on here to send some pictures, and thanks for looking at our blog.

Hi Sue & Daniel

I didn't get to read the end of your story until now & I'm amazed that you never made it home for Christmas! What a trip - definitely life changing. I thought I had it bad out there, but your story makes my experiences in Ust-Kam seem quite mild.
I'm so happy for you to be home with your son & that you're taking the joys & terrors of motherhood in your stride. Congratulations!!

Bernie & Ella (Galway)

We all have heard that dogs love to chew bones, Bones are a good source of minerals and other essential nutrients to satisfy the dog’s appetite.
