Beautiful. I just love tulips and all the spring bulbs. I will never forget taking the train from Paris to Amsterdam and looking out on the fields of tulips that went on forever. They were gorgeous.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I am glad you found my site (through many different blog sites!) :) I am fairly new to blogging and not quite up to speed on how to do everything yet. I LOVE the photo you posted of the tulips...so BEAUTIFUL!! First, congratulations on your adoption journey. I will be anxious to follow along with you also. We were told 2 weeks before we left that our daughter could not go with us and we were under the impression that it was Moscow region's "rule"...come to find out I believe it was just the agency/translator who thought it was a bad idea to take her! I was not too happy about that, she has been a huge part of this whole process. None the less, she is very excited and we hope it works out for her to go this next time. As far as blind travel, it was very nerve wracking, but not too bad. If I had it to do over again, I would wish we could have had a photo and medical before we went over. It may have helped us make a decision while in country and not prolonged things. It was so hard to make a life long decision with only being with her for approx. 3 hours the whole trip. We are just stepping out on faith and trusting God, we know He will not give us anything we cannot handle!! Check back, we may have some updated info soon! Have a great week and look forward to keeping in touch!

I can't help but think your opportunities for pretty pictures are endless. You are blessed to have such a backyard for strolling.

Oh, wow, they ARE beautiful! I'd love to have a garden like it!

That must mean "pretty picture no news". It took me a minute.

I was just reading Heather's note, and realized that actually we met Zhen blind. No photo, no nothing... my husband didn't even know I'd put out feelers about a second child! (Now I think of it; is a really good man.) Furthermore, we only got a half hour with him before they whisked him off. And when we wanted to see him next day it was "So sorry; he has been taken to the country." We almost thought they were hiding him from us on purpose. I am SO glad we have our beloved Zhen. Life would not be the same without his sweet, affectionate, spiritually attuned self. I wish you such good fortune!

Love the pictures - we never got to see Russia in spring or summer - only fall (briefly) or winter (extensively)... Maybe someday...

2 out of 3 of our adoptions were "blind" as you say. No picture, no records. All went well... just gotta breath and have faith.
Actually our first adoption when we had picture, video and medical records - that one was the scariest!
And you know the rest of the story.
Just go with the flow...
