During dinner Aidan (whose idea it was to have Ukrainian food each gotcha anniversary) said, "next year we should have fish and chips on Daddy's gotcha day" (the day Daddy immigrated from England to America). Then he said, "Daddy, what day did you come to America."
Both Jason and I paused for a second and even though we had never realized it before in that moment we loved the God sighting. I don't think things happen by chance!
Jason immigrated to America on July 8th, 2001 to marry me (I know I am blessed ;) )...10 years to the day that we got Dariya out of the orphanage forever.
So next year maybe we will have fish and chips and some Ukrainian food.
Dariya loved the borscht but wasn't too keen on my vereniki (I had to agree with her). Alayna and Aidan tolerated the borscht and picked out the insides of the vereniki and called it good.
