Nikita was adopted from Russia at the age of one and a half! I can never thank God enough for making him a part of our family!! He has been such a blessing to all of us!!
When we were going through the adoption process they sent us a picture of what the child looked like that we were going to adopt. I looked at the picture of Nik and i feel in love with him than and there! He was perfect for our family!!!
Here is the picture:
I have been able to watch him grow into a laughing, hilarious, funny, spunky, strong seven year old and it seems like just yesterday i met him for the first time!!
When dad and mom went to the orphanage to visit him, dad and him were playing together and dad was able to make him laugh for the first time. This picture captured the moment! :-)
He loves music and LOVES to sing! One day he was in the car and began to sing a song and make up his own words. He will sing anywhere and anytime. Sometimes i will be singing a song from the radio and he will start singing it with me word for word! It is amazing!! God has truly blessed him with a gift for music! He also loves to dance!! He will come up to me and ask me to dance with him in the kitchen! He is an amazing boy!!!
He also loves to dress up and play pre-tend games!! He has a great imagination and uses it daily!!
So happy birthday Nikita! I love you so much and i can't wait to see God use you for His glory in the coming years of your life! :-)
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! <3 <3
Your big sister,
