Mama Bear and Travel

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts and encouragement. I guess I just wasn't expecting a comment in my own family like that regarding my adopting. I'm still not ok with it, but I'm trying to keep it in perspective. I'm really sorry that my sister has to go through this situation with him, and I realize that it is best that my daughter won't have as much contact with that as I originally thought.

So, onto happier thoughts... I had my first travel call today. It was informative, but I still feel a bit overwhelmed with the travel stuff. I'm hoping to get my sister and friend's paperwork done this weekend so we can get our Visa paperwork sent off by Monday.

They say we could still potentially travel the first week of June (?! yikes!) and up to the end of June. So, let's see!! I'm figuring June, and I'd LOVE to have Mia her before my nephew's birthday... but, wow, that would be Quick!! Let's see how it goes! :)

I'm headed up to see Sis tonight... and we're gonna hang out with my nephew all weekend. My dad also got us reservations for Mother's Day for lunch! I'm quite excited about that.



  1. Your xBIL sounds like a very unhappy person. Don't waste any energy on him!

    Enjoy this exciting time. Your dreams are coming true :)

  2. Enjoy your weekend and try to not let the xbil steal your joy.
    '*•. .•*' Happy Mothers Day! ~*♥*~

  3. You will be traveling before you know it! How exciting!

    Have a wonderful weekend with your sis and nephew. Lunch sounds wonderful.

    Happy Mother's Day!!

  4. Are you going to come to grammy's too though? I was hoping to see you, even though I have to work at 3:45. Let me know!!

  5. Yeah, don't let that xbil take away your over the moon happiness!!
    Happy Mom's Day Melissa!

  6. Clearly, some people are just a**holes and it looks like your family will be rid of this creep soon. Hope you and your sister had a great Mother's Day!
