This May 2012 photo provided by M & M Photography shows Dan, Nancy and Max Genatiempo of Zionsville, Ind. The suburban Indianapolis couple endured a year filled with red tape, tens of thousands of dollars in travel costs and months of anxious waiting when they adopted their son from Russia in 2007. The couple recently began the process of adopting a Russian sister for their now 6-year-old son, Max. But they aren't overly optimistic that their second adoption will be any easier, despite the Russian parliament's approval of a long-awaited agreement to simplify the adoptions by Americans.
