This video starts out with my wife and I being up for almost 48 hours. As you can see we were a little ""bug eyed." Juliana (then named Irina) was such a joy to be around as she is now. She was about 20 months old when we adopted her. You will see video of our approach to the orphanage as it was hidden between apartment buildings which is normal in that city. It was in August but the orphanage workers insisted on her wearing a Winter coat.

NEVER BEFORE SEEN BY THE PUBLIC These highlights from the Carver family go back to February and March 2004. It begins with us celebrating Rebecca and Matthew's Adoption day followed by some random moments with our family. You will see how much of a "dare-devil" Juliana was when she was so small. The last half of the highlights is us adopting Juliana's biological sister. We took Juliana with us in the trip. We had no idea she had a biological sister until we were in Belarus adopting Juliana in 2003. While in Belarus, in March 2004, we took Juliana back to her orphanage to say hi to the employees who helped raise her until we adopted her. They were amazed at her eyes. When we adopted Juliana her eyes were crossed and we had them corrected surgically shortly after we adopted her. If it wasn't for the kindness of several people we could not have afforded to adopt Kristina so Juliana and Kristina could be together forever. The video ends with us getting home from adopting Kristina. All six of our kids are from Russia and Belarus. I love them more than they can possibly imagine.

Several weeks ago I mentioned to my friends on Facebook that I was going back through my thousands of hours of DVDs of our kids growing up. I'm taking out just a few of the highlights and thought I would share them with you. The highlights in these video clips happened less than a year before Juliana was diagnosed with cancer for the first time.

On August 6, 2016 we had a birthday party for Tammy (3 days before her birthday). We could have never imagined that the photo I took at the end of the past with Tammy and all our children would be the LAST photo I would ever take of Tammy and all the kids. Juliana passed away on October 24, 2016. Juliana just wanted to be healthy, a regular teenager, play with her dog Maddie and become a Chef when she grew up. Our family will NEVER be the same without Juliana. We miss her SO MUCH!! A LOT of you have emailed and messaged me asking if there was a way to get shirts with Juliana's quotes on them. We are ALMOST ready to make those available. You are going to LOVE THEM! www.angelsforjuliana.com (Music by Kevin MacLeod. I do not own the music in this video)

Russian Adoption of Caroline Grace in T'ver, Russia. The whole process took about one year and FOUR trips to Moscow, and an auto trip four hours north to T'ver. This second adoption was in the summer with temperatures in May ranging from snow to the low 90's! By the time we left in September, it was getting cold once again. Thank you Russia for giving us Sweet Caroline!! We are forever grateful.
