Roman’s first birthday was held at his Baby Home in Russia.  I was awaiting the call from Russia to go back for Court and bring him home.  The Care givers generously had a little party for him and gave him the gifts I left and read him the birthday card I wrote.  I was so grateful and so heart broken.


Since that day we’ve looked forward to celebrating Roman’s second birthday at home.  Celebrate we did!  A perfectly magical summer backyard birthday party at Nana and Papa’s..  Bubbles, Elmo cake, goodies galore, friends and family showering my birthday boy with gifts, balloons, love and laughter.

Happy Birthday Roman. 

Today you are the birthday boy but every day you are our greatest gift.
