Well, I have to admit...when we started this blog...and we started our journey to international adoption 334 days ago, we thought we'd be in an entirely different place by now. Literally and figuratively. We thought we'd be packing for a trip to Nepal over the holidays this year. (Sadly, I have continued to use the idea that we'd be in Nepal over the holidays to avoid Christmas shopping...)
Well, we're packing, but not for Nepal. We've decided to take a trip to Costa Rica to celebrate our 5-year anniversary. (If we haven't recieved word by April, which obviously I hope isn't the case, I'm hankering for a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon.) Don't get me wrong - I'd trade it all in to go meet our baby! But, we're also not going to stop living. It will happen. And it will happen in the right time. And in the mean time, we're going to Costa Rica. Hasta luego.
Our thoughts are with the people of Nepal during this turbulent time.
Namaste for now.
