Where the journey began

The picture on the left is where Sara's major journey began. Approximately 3 1/2 years ago Sara was found in this location with a note pinned to her, probably by her biological mother.
She was a month old.

Although her journey for the next 3 1/2 years was not an ideal situation she was well cared for in a foster home and then placed in an orphanage for these last 30 days - now she is going home.

On February 20th Sara will take a 13 hour flight to home. She will have a family with a brother and a sister. It will be almost like being "born again".

This is so wonderful I can hardly stand it it is so wonderful! I am so grateful the birth mommies have such courage to get their babies to finding places, allowing officials to get them to orphanages and foster families till their forever families can unite with them. And what a wonderful forerver family! Wow!!!

I am feeling much better but still sleeping a lot. Tired, but so grateful to be well past the fever part. Am trying to do a little paper work but just had to check in on my Papa and Mama!

Love you all so so so so much,
Roxx

ROFL! I do hate the word "no" so maybe they should just say "yes" instead??!! It would make both me and Sara very happy campers! =P

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - why did I think the word "no" would be a word you do not like! heh heh!
