First went with Violetta and met Sasha and had to speak to a woman who then gave us permission to go to the orphanage. We met with the doctor and she gave us all sorts of information and also a chance to ask questions. Then she went to get Milana.
Milana came walking into the room and she immediately raised her arms to us to pick her up. I went right over and picked her up and held her tight. We got out a doll for her to hold. At first she wasn't sure of it, but then she held it for quite some time without letting go. They took us to a little playroom where we got to sit and play with Milana. Isn't she just precious?? When she came walking in the room she had on this red dress and matching red shoes. Very cute! We have learned from our short time with Milana so far that she really enjoys looking at herself in the mirror. She loves having her picture taken and then looking at herself on the camera. (She is really going to fit in with certain members of our family)!!
Milana was so content to just sit on my lap and play. We looked at pictures of Riley, Peyton, Karissa, and Nadia (who will soon be Milana's bff). Milana would look at the pictures and kiss them and point to them. It was so adorable.
Milana also quickly realized that inside the backpack there are fun things - dolls, toys, books, etc. She kept looking to see what would come out of it next.
When it was time to go we brought Milana back to her caretakers (who seem so nice). We waved goodbye to her and she waved back. Then we blew her kisses and the caretakers also showed her how and she blew kisses to us. It was so hard to leave. We can't wait to get back to our sweet girl tomorrow.
