The days following our learning about a possible referral have felt like a dream. We wander around the house with equal parts excitement, disbelief, and panic. For reasons we cannot post on this blog, we will be traveling to Russia early next month, which gives us a bit more time than most PAPs to prepare. To that end, my hubby is diligently working on our airfare and hotel reservations, as well as the visa applications (my hero!). I am responsible for scheduling TB test and blood work re-dos (results need to be within one month of our visit) and packing. Together, we make a perfect team!
Now, when we enter the room we've prepared for our child, it feels different. I can't explain it because I don't entirely know why it is so. Everything feels different. We really are on a journey that will change us forever; it already has.
p.s. We'd love to hear suggestions from others who have made this trip!
