Thank you St. Patrick's for bringing us the BEST NEWS today!!! Adrian received a notice to go to the post office to pick up an international letter. This was the best gift for all of us today!
We received a letter from Cristina --- Paula and Nic's oldest sister!!!!!!!!
For the past 5 years, I've been sending a small package to their sisters, Cristina and Melania with pictures and updates on P and Nic...every year, I hoped they received the package with the understanding of my intentions. This is the first time that they have written back! The girls live with different foster families but are in the same village. From the pictures, it looks like they are very much in each others' lives which makes me feel so HAPPY! There are many times I wished I was younger and could have adopted all 4 children. I am so thrilled that the sisters are open to having a relationship with P and Nic. This is so nice.
When I showed the letter to Paula, she had some tears. Nic was indifferent.
I'll have to translate.....
5 years ago when they last saw each other:
Cristina (8) , Melania (7), Paula (5), Niculai (3)
** Nic saw this picture and said, "See Mom, look at how annoyed I was to have 3 sisters."
And here they are today: Cristina (13) and Melania (12)
This looks like a younger picture of Cristina. I have to send them Easter dresses!!! I am so excited!!!
I don't know who this man is.....Foster Dad? Birth Dad??? I think the birth Dad is younger than Adrian and me, so I don't think it's him....hmmmmm....look at his smile and Cristina's smile and the crinkle between the eyes....similar?
The more I think about it, the more I think he might be their birth Dad....she only sent us a handful of pictures, why did she include this one? I'll just have to find out....
