Adoption is hard and we have been doing this for just a week short of two years (wow!). We've had our ups and downs and a lot of waiting and a lot asking what we are doing this for again? In Russia I had to pinch myself a few times and remind myself that not only were we in RUSSIA but we were going to meet a child that might be our child FOREVER. It really is surreal. Now we are home waiting to see her again, sometimes I am with heavy heart and I know I will miss her on Christmas but I just have to remember this (look to your left) to know that I will wait forever if I have to.
