It is so hard to believe that in less than 2 weeks, we will be travelling back to Russia to be the official parents of our baby boy barring any crazy complications during the 10 day waiting period. We do not foresee any.
My husband and I were painting the babies room today and no where near finished. I suppose in my mind, I thought we had all of this time. But, it really dawned on me in full force today that we only had one full weekend left. B is going over for the court date and then coming home and I will be over there for 21 days. He is coming back with our 5 1/2 year old daughter after the 10 days are up. But, i will be away from our youngest for 3 weeks. It is such a wierd experience for me.
I am SOOO excited to get back to Russia to be with Baby S. But, this will be the first time that I have been away from my husband or children for this length of time. But, on the other hand...this will probably be the only time in Baby S' life that I will have alone time with him. So, it is such a double edged sword.
There is so much too get done at home to get our house in order before we leave. I am a "lists" person and lots to do. But, it is also a very exciting time. We will be staying with a host family while we are there which will be really cool to experience it all.
No one really tells you or explains to you what a roller coaster ride it is. For us, we have been blessed that it hasn't been a roller coaster ride so much in the process, but, in emotions. It will all be worth it. No worries, I will be reporting live again when we get there. Our host family has internet access....YEA!!!!!!!!
