Belated Birthday Present

Yup!!!! You guessed it! Today, of all days, I got the magic phone call!! It was a "perfect storm" of sorts with a lot of things leading up to "the call": my sadness last week, birthday this week and to top it all off I was away from home on a quick trip for work. Since suddenly (yesterday) this turned into an overnight trip, I did actually have my laptop with me. Lorien from my agency called and said the magic, wonderful words, followed up with some additional information on my computer.

More details to follow, but it looks like soon I will be off to meet a wonderful little boy!

Okay .. as if calling you last night and letting you hear our champagne cork go "POP" and Sasha yell "WAHOO" wasn't proof enough that we are SO psyched for you, I had to post as well. I am so thrilled that you will be traveling soon and can't wait to hear about your meeting. You know I'm totally here for you - email, phone-a-friend, prayers - whatever you need .. to Vlad and beyond. YEA! You're going to Russia to meet your son!
