Just in case some of you are wondering what crazy parents would allow their kids to go on a big school trip then a second international trip eleven days later... apparently we do. When we signed forms allowing her to go on the school trip we did not know when we would be receive our adoption referral. We figured that if we hadn't been matched by April with a little girl the trip would be a great diversion for Rykauna. She was already pining for the referral way back in the fall. As is turns out it, the trip is still providing a good diversion. The week before she left and this week she hasn't had much time to think about her little 'mei mei'.
Her mother and father have been thinking about little 'mei mei' often though. In fact yesterday a thought crossed my mind that has always crossed my mind every time I've welcomed a new little one into my life, "I just wish mom could meet this new little grandchild." One thing I do know though, is that mom prayed for her future grandchildren. For that, I am thankful. I am also grateful for the time I had with her. Hope this post doesn't sound too depressing. Sorry if it makes a few of you tear up. I think I digressed a bit too much today. Well I better sign off now and catch a few zzz. The bus driver is not the only one working night shift tonight!
