Three beautiful hours of sleep

We're leaving in two hours.

I am not ready.

I have everything I need. Good traveling companions. Open heart. Arms waiting to hug me.

It's the paradox of life on earth - not ready, and yet, able. Amazing adaptable human beings.

It's the biggest love journey I have ever been given. Everything I've ever experienced has prepared me for this. This one journey.

I am breathing. I am being. I am shining light. I am love in motion.

Peace, peace, peace.

Beautiful post- especially the second to last line. No better description of a mother traveling across the world to meet her children than "love in motion."

I found you while crawling through adoption blog after adoption blog after adoption blog. You're the friend of a friend of a friend of a friend-well, I think you get it. You're in Ethiopia right now, with your three konjo babies and I just wanted to say "woop".

We just got back from Ethiopia with our two school-aged kiddos!

Hello! I think I commented on your blog once before, but I wanted to say hello again as I saw you in a yahoo group. In fact, you answered a question of mine. Thank you for your guidance. I look forward to following your blog.
