The Ball is Rolling

The ball is rolling. Thought I would try and keep you all updated. I know some of you are more familiar with the adoption process than others. Please bear with me as I try to give you some sense of what the process looks like, where we are, and what is next.

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is an interesting holiday. While the story that is taught in school is the one of starving Pilgrims and Native Americans sitting down together for a meal, the holiday wasn't established as a national holiday that day. Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863.

Learning a Language

So, in August we moved to Scotland. I knew that things would be different, but I thought it would be an easier transition than when I moved to Colombia. I thought - at least I know the language. Looking back, that assumption makes me laugh. The longer I am here the more I realize I don't always know what is being said. I am not as confident that I know the language being spoken.
