I like to check my sitemeter and see where folks are when they read my blog. I often see someone from Germany, the UK, occasionally Norway, but my face lights up when I see Ukraine.
Why Ukraine? you might ask.
Because, I might answer, I can generally guess those are Reece's Rainbow families who are over there adopting a little one or two or more. I totally get the boredom that can creep into the long stays in country. Although I remember my adoption trips very fondly (hey, who else gets to say they met a member of the Russian mafia?) I do know the yearning to be home. When home isn't coming anytime soon then at least we can read blogs and see normal family life and birthday celebrations and we can think of the day when we will celebrate our new little one's birthday.
So to my Ukrainian reader today--hello! I hope you're doing well! I hope you're soon home and immersed in recalling your new little one or two or more back to life.
Until then...enjoy a little dose of what passes for normal around here. ;-)
