The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Uncle Eric and Auntie Kelley

Eric Dukat and Dan's sister Laura married several years ago and ever since, the Dukats and the Currys have kind of blended into one big happy family. That includes sisters, fathers..the whole family! Eric's sister Kelley lives here in San Diego, so when Eric came out for work (he's in the military) both of them were able to come up for a visit! Dan went to pick up Eric at the train station and Kelley drove up separately after work. When Dan and Eric walked through the door, Keira looked at him kind of funny for a second, then walked over to the picture of the Curry family from Christine's wedding. Since most of our family is all over the place, we try to show Keira pictures so that she will recognize everyone. Dan has been introducing all of his family through Christine's wedding picture. Well, she looked at the picture and recognized Uncle Eric but was looking back and forth kind of confused. We then realized what the problem was. Eric had grown out a moustache since then! It was pretty funny how she did that though. Dan said that she was checking out the approved list of people that she can play with before interacting with him LOL
Here he is with his new moustache. Ok,it probably isn't that new....but we haven't seen him for a while, so it's new to us!
Here is Auntie Kelley! Kelley does alot of volunteer work with animals in shelters. She adopted a beautiful white shephard named Kita that she takes on road trips with her. They recently went to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah for a visit. In case you aren't familiar with Best Friends, it is a no kill animal sanctuary for animals that have been abandoned, mistreated and left behind. It is a wonderful organization that I actually donate to through work.
We all decided to go out to dinner and first headed to The Armenian Cafe in Carlsbad. It was closed! After that, we headed over to Azafran in Oceanside. It's a great little place on Coast Highway that has great Cuban food and if you go at JUST the right time, they have a band that plays Cuban music. Here is Keira looking like a little adult trying to keep up with the conversation. It was great seeing Eric and Kelley again! Hopefully we'll get to see them really soon!
