If you think I look happy here, and I think I do, imagine how I'll be feeling tomorrow!

The gift waiting at the end of the rainbow for me is better than any pot of gold.
When this posts I'll be on the plane to Moscow!





Aside: A Russian friend, upon seeing my pictures from trip one--this one included--said, "But, Kate. Seriously. You are an actor. You are a professional. Your faces in these pictures, you were just putting them on, weren't you? You didn't really feel like this?

I assured her, or tried to, that I actually was happy about this.

A post on the comments and questions I've gotten is in the works...or should be.

And the Oscar for best actress....

Happy dancing for you. Have a great flight, spread continual confusion among the locals by smiling all the time, and may time speed by for you both until your reunion.

Best wishes and prayers for you both that your transition to family life is as smooth as possible.

So happy for you both. So, so happy. Have a joyful day tomorrow.

So excited for you Kate. And SO excited for Lexi - she is one lucky little girl to get you for a mommy!! Hope Kitty handles your absence okay.

Maggie said...

That was definitely a Russian friend who said that to you, because no friend in the adoption community would ever doubt that emotion. You deserve to feel that happiness!

Essie the Accidental Mommy said...

I can't believe all that happiness fit into one room! Does she have dimples? The side view looks like there might be dimples on her cheeks.
Hope your cat does ok!

Acting! What a joke! As if I were acting now, sitting in my laundry room with happy tears on my cheeks. It is joy like this that allows one to call up the feelings of true happiness later should you need them in a theatrical way.

I think you are a peach for saving this photo for last. That dear, dear fortunate child.
