About Me

My photo
My husband and I, the Dynamic Duo, have been married since 2003. We've weathered the storm of chronic disease (diagnosis 2006), infertility (diagnosis 2007), turning 30 (2006/2007 respectively) a first adoption (2009) of a tender hearted, compassionate Ukrainian BIG boy (born 2006), who has told us he'd like a baby sister, baby brother, big brother, and REALLY big sister. We recently completed our second Ukrainian adoption journey, which brought us a daughter (born 2005). We'll see what else God brings our way!

Visiting Girl #2

We had a very interesting meeting at the SDA on Thursday.  We decided to go see a 6 year old girl, but we can't see her until Tuesday (Monday is a holiday).  So our train tickets are being purchased, we're bringing a doctor along for this one, and I'm gearing up for another long trip there and back in a few short days.  This place is about as close to Russia as you can get...as in you can throw a stone and it will land in Russia.  I'm not very optimistic about this visit, but Dave seems to be excited.

I think I've been going through a little depression lately.  All I want to do is sleep and I'm pretty much on the verge of tears at any given moment.  Today I got a little reprieve, though.  While waiting at the SDA, I got to talk to FOUR American adoptive families.  We're headed in all kinds of directions, but it was nice to spend an hour chatting with someone!  That's what's going on now...not much else.  Sigh.

Awww. I'm sorry to hear you are feeling so poorly. Stress definatly does that! I hope the a/c helps so you can sleep better:) Can you exercise while there? That can boost your endorphins and help the depression feelings...
