What goes through the mind of a mommy gearing up to fly halfway around the world to meet their son? It's a jumble of so many things, that I can't believe my mind quieted enough to allow some sleep. Checklists... worry.... excitement... disbelief... happiness... anticipation... Very very soon we will welcome this small little person into our lives forever. I think of my wedding day and the day I held my little Livija for the first time, and know that this day will rival those. One of the happiest day of our lives is right around the corner.
As I type this, Papa is making Livija her Pink Birthday Waffles. My little girl is 4 today. Four years ago was quite possibly the most terrifying and miraculous day of our lives, as Livija came into the world 14 weeks early. Here we are four years later, preparing ourselves for our next miracle. This day was years in the making and I can't quite believe it's here.
Late tonight, when most of you are sleeping we will take off in a plane for Korea. Tomorrow afternoon we will meet our son for the first time. Friday we will welcome him into our arms forever. We are very lucky to have been asked to take custody much earlier than anticipated. This will allow us time to get to know our son and to explore Seoul with him. This is a priveledge not everyone gets. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to get pictures of our boy in the country he has called home.
I'll be posting from Korea, so keep checking in!
