I got a video of Asya taking a few steps! For a while, we helped her walk around by looping Raia's Pants under her arms and holding her up. Then, it seemed like she thought the Pants were magic. She'd hold on to them, with no one supporting her, and walk. This was a few days ago, and she's already moved on from them, though. (For those who don't know, the Pants are like Raia's security blanket.)
And this is a completely different subject: it's a small world! A little while ago, we got a call from our friend Ivan's brother. He lives on the other side of Ukraine, but he and his wife were visiting some of her relatives here. So, they came over for tea. It was wonderful to see them! We had worked together in camps, years ago. Then, yesterday, there was a family visiting our church, also from western Ukraine. I thought they looked familiar. They turned out to be Pasha's (our pastor in Kovrov) sister and her husband and baby!
