Time Resolves All Problems

I have a completed updated dossier. The best news, however, is that MOM IS COMING HOME! We are so excited to have this chapter of life behind us. Mom has made great progress over the last couple weeks. She will stay with us until we leave for Ukraine and then stay with some folks that can help her with her minor care needs. Aiden is delighted to have her home with us temporarily. It is amazing to watch them together. Grandparents and grandchildren have an awesome relationship. What a blessing that Aiden will still have time with his grandmother. Mom is so excited for our adoption trip. It will be wonderful having her around.

We are beginning to pack for our trip. We are keeping things down to a minimum and will forgo the minimal luxuries we chose to have in our daily lives. Simple is so much easier I find. If we do get desperate we will pick up whatever we need in Ukraine.

Glad to hear you rmom is doing well and back home!
I am so excited for you all!
The Nolan's will be in St Pete the weekend before Memorial day and can hopefully meet up, say hi and introduce the kids!

It is so great to hear that your Mom is home! That has got to be a huge weight off your shoulders. I'm so glad she's doing so much better.

You're ahead of me with the packing. We're getting to that this week, but we leave in a week and a half! Yikes!

Hang in there!

I agree with keeping things down to a minimum. I packed way too much and it was not convenient to drag all our suitcases with us. This time I'm packing very light!

I'm very happy to hear that your Mom is home - isn't it great to spend time with her before your trip?

Hi! I just discovered your blog from the Johnsons' blog. I skimmed it a little but wasn't able to tell if you already know who your child is and what age and gender he/she is. Your travel date will be here soon! Congrats!
