slow slow.. quick quick

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…..
