Just Smile and Nod and Tell Me it Will Be Okay
I am sorry to be so scarce lately. The reality of the adoption is hitting hard. We are so excited. There is so much to do. I was so concerned about the home study, I forgot to prepare for a baby and the fact that I will be gone for so long.We have come to the realization that I am going to have to go to Hawaii without Bruce for a time. He will join me later. This also means I could be away for 3 weeks or a little more. That is hard with the kids. I know it will not ruin them for life, but it is hard to leave them that long. They are all thrilled with the thought of a new brother, so we will all dwell on that. They will only be without Bruce for a week and a half or so. So, that will not be so bad. Just agree with me. It makes me feel better. The great thing about this(yes, let's look on the up side) is I will have so much time to bond with the baby. I am looking forward to that. Also, it IS 3 weeks in Hawaii. Some would be jealous. I am looking forward to the fellowship I will have with a blog friend there as well. Thanks Anne,for opening your home to me. So, tell me to get over it and look on the bright side. It is only 3 weeks of their entire lives. They will be fine. Like I said, just agree with me.
