Ya.. after LOTS and LOTS of nothing. Finally a lot of something! I got a referral and I have accepted and will travel to meet HER July 2. Yep a girl! AND she is younger than I had anticipated but still a toddler. I could NOT possibly be more excited. She has a sweet face. She has an inquisitive and determined look on her and I am so excited and nervous and anxious and happy!
I will be traveling alone so I will need lots of good thoughts and prayers from everyone that everything goes smoothly and well. I will of course blog and keep everyone posted.
Right now I am filling out Visa paperwork and tomorrow I will head to San Fran to drop it off at the embassy so I can get it in 4 days to be ready for travel. There are quite a few other things I need to get done in the next few days since I was planning on camping Mon-Wed next week. I am stressed.. I think the most stressed I have ever been. But, in a few days, when all the errands are done and the details ironed out. I will be good. And soon enough I will be on a plan to Russian Federation to MEET my girl!
Breathe…. breathe… breathe…..
