Why fly across the world to adopt? Well, we really hoped to have a Eurasian baby so that he/she would reflect both of us to some degree. But where do we find such a child? We heard from a friend in the field that Kazakhstan is loaded with such people, and we should look into it. Well, we researched it, and found Kazakhstan to have excellent orphanages, and drug/alcohol problems are quite rare due to religious beliefs. The kicker was that every picture of the kids we saw was just gorgeous! And yes, most were Eurasian. When we learned more about the history of Kazakhstan, it became apparent why this is the case. We read that after you get serious about an international adoption, once you start researching, you get drawn to a country, and it 'just feels right'. I never believed it when I read it, but it turned out to be true! We were both just drawn to Kazakhstan, and we knew it was right!  Below is a diary which we will do much more with when the time comes:
