Vacation Time

Six a.m. in the morning is when we head out for our family vacation. I really should be packing and going through the last minute details. But I wanted to say a few things first . . .

Thank you everyone for the kind words on my last post. I'm actually very happy to report that my oldest son pushed me right out of my funk when he came home yesterday with two pictures for me that he was able to get ahold of while he was staying with his adoptive mom (sadly without her knowledge.)

For me, images of how my son looked growing up ended with his Kindergarten picture. I have a decade long void of knowing what my son looked like. I never saw another picture of him until three years ago when I first found his page on MySpace.

So to get those pictures of him was the most amazing, most wonderful thing that could have happened. I sat and stared, and still do honestly, at them. How could I not with the glimpse into his childhood?

And now we are off for the first part of our vacation where he will meet his great grandmother and aunt and uncle and cousins for the first time. And I will collect more pictures to carry us into the future.

All in all, it's a great feeling to have tonight.

And one I am excited to continue, so just one more thing before I go . . .

There were some great points made in the comment section of my last post that I am hoping to respond to as soon as I get back, but in the meantime, please venture over to Myst's blog for her latest post, What Does It Mean To You?

It is definitely one worth reading.

Take care and see you soon!
