She was very appreciate of the presents and seemed a little overwhelmed by the gesture.
So, then we asked her what her name was and she said, "Irina". I had to ask her to repeat it to make sure my ears were really hearing this incredible connection to our daughter. After she repeated it, I told her that Nadia's name was Nadia Irina Ferguson. She started to tear up and then when I told her that the birth mother's name was Irina too, she had to look away as the emotion of the moment swept over her. Me too. Our boys couldn't get over it and said right away, "Mom, you've got to blog about this!" If you haven't read the story of how we decided on Nadia's middle name, you can read about it here. http://seeingtheupsideofdown.blogspot.com/2010/06/whats-in-name.html
Once again, I can't finish a post without more pictures of Nadia.
