Merry Christmas to my children in Russia

I have enjoyed this Christmas season, but being in an active international adoption changes perspective. My children in Russia have been on my mind. Because I hope to be meeting them in February, I know that they are now alive there in Russia. Waiting. When my family gathered together tonight to eat our Christmas day feast, I longed to have my other children there with me. It was bittersweet. Bitter knowing that they aren't with me, but sweet knowing that soon they will be here. I don't know their names, their ages, what color their eyes are or anything specific, but I know that they are mine. Or, at least, they soon will be.

Merry Christmas children. Your mama is here in FL thinking of you and longing to hold you tonight.
