Heart Songs. . .

Two years ago today, we left the US for a month long trip to Russia. It was the trip of a lifetime to go to court, which ultimately led to bringing home our son.

I was so nervous--a month is a long time to be away from home--and I wasn't too sure how we would live for nearly three weeks in the Siberian town of Krasnoyarsk--we weren't certain our hotel reservation would be honored until we actually got there. Talk about a leap of faith!

But, that faith has brought joy and music to our lives in ways so unimaginable at the time! What began, two years ago today, as a scary, nervewracking, and sometimes tear filled journey led to our happy little family of three with lessons learned, and to be learned by all of us every day.

We have been joyfully blessed with this little man!

It's so encouraging to read your entries...each one is more affirming- this process is real, and will end with a child in a home! :) Couldn't be happier for you, Pat, and, of course, Aidan!
