In this July 2012 photo provided by the Pardus-Abbadessa family, Drew Pardus-Abbadessa hugs the boy he and his wife Frances hope to adopt from an orphanage in Kyrgyzstan, during a visit to the boy's orphanage. They have been persisting in their efforts to adopt the boy, whose Russian name is Vladimir, since he was a baby but have had just five brief visits with him since they signed on to adopt him in 2008.
