This was the best visit with Aubree so far. She was really having fun with us. She was, finally, walking around and really playing with us. And, again, she seemed happy to see us when we came to pick her up. She was even doing alot of "talking" and making lots of sounds. She let us hold her hand when we were walking with her... before she would pull her hand away if we tried to hold it. We were trying to teach her to give kisses and she was puckering up...very cute. Each day gets better and better. You can see new four new pictures of her in the "Introducing Aubree" album at:

Enjoy the pictures!

OK, "her first nap with daddy picture" brought me to tears. You all belong together. See Shan, I told you a long time ago, that God works in wonderful ways, and that everything happens for a reason. I can not wait to see her and to know you are all home safe.

Dear Shannon and Dave, I am so happy for you that things are going so well. It sounds like each day is a new experience with Aubree and each day gets better. I can't wait to plan a supper out or something when you all get back home. Maybe we can get all the babies together again, Nikki's, Tammy's, Trenton, Yours and Tracy's. That was alot of fun!!! Take care, Love to you All, Rita, Terry and Oscar

Shannon & Dave, Aubree is an absolute doll! I keep looking at her pictures, and how happy she is! It really gives the rest of us who haven't traveled yet tons of hope that our baby is out there as well! Who knows, maybe our daughter is in Aubree's group! Once again congrats, and have a safe and great trip! We are all thinking about you guys on the boards!

What a cutie, (Not you Dave) Aubree is adorable! We can tell in the pictures, Aubree's day is made on your guy’s arrival. We are all starting to notice the family resemblance in every picture you post. We can tell from all the comments posted that Aubree (And Brenna) have gained lots & lots of Uncles and Aunts. We all are hoping for speedy mail service from Kiev to finalize the process so you can get your little girl back home to her “big” sister. WMI & WSM.

Great pixs. The one of Aubree sleeping on Dave's shoulder showed that she is starting to understand that you love her and feels safe. Dad said that Aubree is a lucky little girl to be joining the family and that is true, but we are also lucky because you found her. We are counting the days. Give Aubree a kiss and tell her grandma and grandpa are waiting for her to come home. Love - Mom
