I changed the blog layout and header again...Everytime I looked at that Beach background, I felt a little sad, so onto Fall..My other favorite time of year!
Hillary got me thinking about our history. You know that saying "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it," well that's what I am afraid of..Looking through my many photos of the adoption process, makes my adoption clock tick..Not loudly, but I hear it! Maybe I will never adopt again, but I will go back to Russia and see the most beautiful city in the world, Khabarovsk, Russia...
I can't beleive how much my daughters have grown and changed. I am sure everyone says that. My mom is always saying how time flies, but I try my best to hold onto every moment. This time of year does bring me back to both girls adoptions.
I was traveling for court for Anna, and traveling to meet AugustRose. The fall is such a special time. I am oddly envious of gals like Stacey. Poor thing is in that watiing stage, has been there a while. But Lord knows good things are coming to her. That goodness that happens on the court trip is as close to magical as I know of. I could do that again and again, I just don't think I can do the money, the paperwork, the waiting, the frustration, the agency...Just can't do it. I can't wait for us to travel to the FarEast to work with the orphanages. I can't wait to put my feet back onto Russian soil, not for an adoption, but to give back. To give some sort of offering of love."
Thank you Hillary for reminding me of those good days in Khabarovsk.
