My new home for the next few weeks....

Tonight I am sleeping in a new place, and a new bed. And I will be for the next three weeks.

Any guesses where I am??

I'll give you some hints:

1 - I get to see these two everyday!

2 - I get to see her everyday!

3 - I get to see these three everyday!

4 - Soon I will get to see this beautiful girl... and hold her in my arms.... and whisper in her ear she is loved.... and... and... I'm crying just thinking about it!

Have you guessed where I am yet?

My flights were uneventful... I met some neat people and got to sit in an awesome room with couches and free snacks during my layovers (because I flew as an unaccompanied minor). Beast of all were the 3 that picked me up at the airport though! :)

I sat next to a sweet lady on my first flight who was born right by where I live, and was flying back home to CT after visiting her sister. She asked where I was going, I said to help provide childcare for an adopting family in NY. She asked how I got connected to to them, so I explained that we adopted, and met my parents met them over in (insert country here) when they were adopting a little girl from the same orphanage that one of my brothers was at, etc.

I mentioned my brothers and their 3 have Down syndrome. She said she thought people with Ds were so sweet and special and that she really believed they were sent down to earth for a greater purpose.

It's the little things that make me happy and make my day. When people understand. When they aren't indifferent. When they are interested in hearing about the plight of orphans with Down syndrome in other countries. I love being a voice for the voiceless, and being able to tell people about the things that should be common knowledge, but aren't.

I promise I will still be blogging these next few weeks - my "regular" posts and posts (with pictures!) about being here. I am soo very looking forward to the next few weeks with the Spitz family as they get ready and welcome home their newest baby sister!


  1. Oh...that looks like so much more fun than helping me process a gazillion tomatoes...lucky you! :-)

    But seriously, I'm so very proud of you! This is a wonderful thing you are doing. May the Lord bless you and the Spitz family. Praying for you!

    Love you and miss you!

  2. Wow, is this a suprise or what!? ;)

    So happy for both you and the Spitzes- I'm sure this'll be a fun time!

    God Bless- will be praying as always!


  3. You're really something else. That's so sweet of you. I'm sure they will appreciate it.

  4. so so so jealous!!! Snuggle those babies for me, especially S.G. Tell her that I miss "my" girl!!!

  5. So cool! Can't wait to hear all about your experience and see pictures!
