Last year I got a new cousin, David. He came all the way from Latvia and became part of our family when my Uncle Randy and Aunt Amanda adopted him. This summer they adopted two more children, James and Julia, this time from Ukraine (bringing their grand total to six kids!). They had some adoption paperwork to handle in Austin, so the whole family came for a visit. We had a cake made with their photo and a "Welcome to the Family" caption. We swam, played, ate cake and had a good time getting acquainted.
