Julia, as she would come to be known, had been rejected by her birth mother, who’d been unable to look after her. Unfortunately, after being deserted by her mom, the newborn’s start in life didn’t get much better. In fact, she spent her first 12 weeks in hospital with multiple infections, and following that, she was taken to the orphanage.
But now things were finally looking up for little Julia. And just half a year after the soon-to-be parents had first been told that there was a baby waiting for them in Russia, the three were reunited in Tina and Rick’s apartment in the Big Apple.
