DEDHAM, Mass. (CBS) — A Dedham family that had been stuck in diplomatic limbo in Ukraine while trying to bring their newly adopted daughter home is finally celebrating a new life together at home.

Christine Caswell McCarron said from the moment her family laid eyes on 11-year-old Kristina it was love at first sight.

The McCarrons started the adoption process, and all was going well until it came time to pick up Kristina, she said. The McCarron family was caught in a Ukrainian government snafu when the country abruptly halted passport production, leaving McCarron and Kristina along with more than a dozen other American families not knowing when or whether they would ever leave.

Finally, the passports were cleared at the last minute, and mother and daughter both arrived at Logan International Airport on Saturday night.

McCarron said it’s time for her family to start living their lives again.
