I’ve never done this totally solo. I’m going to miss FPD like crazy and there are no words to describe how hard it is to separate from my kids. Last time I did this, when the adoption became so crazy that writing an account of it would only make you think I was making it all up, I had another mom traveling with me who made it alright. I miss that already.
I’ll have other adoptive families with me the second week, but this first week is all me. I guess there’s pain that comes along with having a baby the old fashioned way. This week will be akin to that, I guess, sort of. It will probably be good for me to really get to know and spend time with our Dolly. I feel ready for that. Kind of.
We’ll see how I feel come next Friday. I’ll update as soon as I can. Promise.
who will wave to you from the Great Wall.
