You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby!

You\'ve Come a Long Way, Baby!Here is Tania, around age 6, in Russia.  We noted that many little girl photos from Russia have them with the big bows.  Notice how Tania appears to be squinting.  Well, she probably is trying to see the camera/photographer…as she needed a very strong prescription for glasses once she got to America at age 10.

It would have been nice to have had Tania when she was a little girl…but it was not meant to be.  We are happy we have her now and for the most part she is a great kid.  She is a very strong willed girl, but that is what made her survive her experiences in Russia.  I wish we could go back and take away all the bad experiences she had as a small child.  We are working our way through them now though, in the hopes she’ll have a ‘normal’ adulthood someday!  (Whatever normal is!)

Her Mom,

Debbie, The Adoption Coach,
