one ends another begins
Oleg has had a few busy days here in Kiev but good once. Yesterday we visited the Houghtons with there dear daughter Anastasiya. Today we went to the mega mall, not sure if that is what it is called but it was big. The Houghtons came with Trisha, the kids, and I, and it was later determined that we probably wouldn't have made it without the Houghtons!! The kids played for 2 hours at the play place and they were pooped. It was tons of fun!! And now I am starting to feel sad. As much as I want to be home I will miss it. It has been a real eye opener and Ryan and I both have grown so close, that I fear that getting back to our lives will somehow make us forget the lessons we have learned and the times we have spent together. But here is to a new beginning.
Well here is my chance to reflect on this adventure, there was a moment in the car on that final crazy day that I broke out into tears think that this was it!! Today was the day of the beginning of the rest of our lives as a family. The song Time form Tenth avenue north came on the Ipod, (here is the song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw_8o85lFxA ) and it got me thinking of what an amazing love my Heavenly Father has for me. he gave me this opportunity to see how true his love is for me, how he pursues me and never gives up, just like our pursuit for Oleg. The thing is that this is only a glimpse of His love. I feel honored to have experience this, every struggle and every heart ache. I would climb every mountain and walk to the end of the earth for Oleg. This is the miracle of adoption. The prayer of my heart forever Lord is that I can love my son the way you love me.
