    "Uliana (pronounced Ouliana) , Alexandra, Eugenia, Anastasia , Daria ..... I can give you more These are actual Russian names that sound really nice in english too." <----snipped from Shishels' post

    those are beautiful names.... cool it would be to gift your child with a name from her country of origin....
    I think it would be a very moving, touching, legacy with which to honor your daughter, and the wonderful country who entrusts her to you and your wonderful family!

    Bevi, Believe me, I have thought about that too! This child may be gifted with two middle names...
    Its funny to see every one (in my family) debate what her name should be! Our boys have a defenate opinion on this matter! :roll

    Are you going to go and see the baby? My brother in law adopted from the philipines. The baby they got had all kinds of problems that they were not informed about. He needed 8 years of speech therapy, three times a week had several illnesses that were very costly to get medical care. Just something to think about. It is very exciting news!

    Renerian: Yes, we are able to see her, then decide if we want to continue or not. I can also show our ped. Dr the medical report before we go over. I can take digital photos, video and email to his office for review, and they also get rechecked before leaving the country.

    No, its not fool proof, but then a bio child may have issues to be dealt with too.

    Our oldest has a learning disabliliy in reading, writting, and math. And our youngest had speech therapy for 3 years three times a week for 2 hours at a time.

    We are not going to say she will be perfect, when there is no such thing. Thanks for the loving warning though

    Another thing about medical issues, is my Dh works at the hospital and we have fairly good insurance for medical problems.
