This week has been hectic so far. My mother and father sold their house here, and they have only a month to vacate their house. They will be permanent residents of CA. My mother and I have been going through old photos and I am feeling sentimental about my childhood and thinking about the future with my child. I am feeling very lucky to have had amazing parent's. My parents adopted my two brothers and sister, my mother is my bio but my father adopted me. I guess that I have always known that I wanted to adopt a child, for me it feels natural. The game plan was always to have a child and then adopt. Well God had a different plan for my husband and I. My mother will be going back home to CA. on Friday. The US delegation will be in Russia on the 29 -30 and I would like to request prayers for all of pap and children waiting for a family to call their own. My husband and I will be leaving Sunday for a week, I will post again when we get home. Ursula

Spring Has Sprung

What do you do when life becomes beyond stressful? Well if you are anything like me you get your hands dirty. Home Depot had a great sale on mulch 2 for 1 a bag, so nick and I went to town, we also planted three bonsai trees. If you look at the photo they are right by the stairs. Last Friday and last weekend was one of the most challenging times in this adoption journey yet. I just want to post that my heart goes out to the little boy and to all of us pap. I am still hopeful that one day I will meet my child, until then I will keep my self busy, so I don't fall into a pity party. I will post again in a couple of days. "good wishes" Ursula
