The Orphanage

The Buildings

Front Entrance

I would have to guess and say this is some sort of maintenance building.

The gates had some crazy looking spikes on the top.

The Greenhouse~  The Groundskeeper was very proud to show it off to Ash:)

The Grounds

Play Areas~  They are located all over the grounds, these were just a few.

We have not seen much of the inside other than the front desk and the room we are allowed to play with Sergey in.  But from what we have seen it is very nice and clean and the staff is very kind.  We feel blessed that God knew our prayers even before we uttered them for Sergey.  We prayed that he would be in a place that was safe and that there would be someone to show him love.  God has answered all those prayers, the women, one lady in particular, are very affectionate and loving to Sergey and all the children in his groupa.  Sergey lights up every time he sees her, which makes me happy and sad all at the same time.  Happy he has been cared for, but sad for him, and her, that he will be leaving a woman he has known all his life. But I know God will take care of all the details regarding their hearts as well.  So thankful we are here to see it all in person!  I still cannot believe we are here!  I looked at Sergey today and thought, he is real!  The picture that I have been praying for is a real human being and I am sitting next to him and touching him and very soon he is going to be our son!  Praise God!
