Officially official

The ten day wait came and went without cerimony.  Last night I spent watching beach volley ball down on the river and listening to music POUND from the ferry boat that docked at the beach.  Yes folks I AM in Khabarovsk Russia - not on some tropical beach... Russia... 35 degrees in the swealtering sun.  I am relieved that the wait is over but it doesn't feel real or different just yet because I still can't wrap my arms around him and tell him I'll never go away again.  Not long now but it's still part of the journey to be made.  I did some advance planning for Christmas gifts (surprise family... your pending Christmas gifts are from Russia lol) and bought 2 silver St. Gregory pendants and chains from a very beautiful little historical church by Annas house. St. Gregory is the Patron Saint of Victory in Orthodox... fitting I think.  I will give him his on a birthday somewhere down the road - maybe 18 or maybe when he has his first child... but there's lots of time for that.  So, there will be a little preparatory grocery shopping and cooking to do for him to arrive and tonight ladies and gentlemen, I am going to a Russian night club... again, you heard me right... a night club in Russia.  Now for those of you who know I don't frequent the club scene at home and wonder how or why??? Ole really wants to go... so I'll go... and I'll pray that Vodka is the same in Russian... I'm going to need my fair share of it...
Well, I better go put myself together... Ole came all this way for me, I guess the least I can do is smile and say I had a good time.  Secretly she thinks I should bring home 2 Russian boys... and I laugh...
Dahs v dahn ya!

So glad the wait is almost over and you can get home with your son. Have fun clubbing...interested to hear what you think about it. I thought it might be fun when we were there, but the husband said NO WAY!

amy and kevin said...

Yeah! One step closer to bringing Corbin home... and how adorable is he?! What a handsome little guy!

Michelle said...

Congrats Stacey!! After all the waiting, it is now official. You are now Mama to one handsome little boy! Hopefully time flies for you and you can have him in your arms!

Barb said...

Awww! He's so cute! Those eyes!! I've been out of town and feel bad I couldn't offer you some words of encouragement during all the cr@p you went through.

You seem like such a strong person . . only a few more days and then he'll be in your loving Momma arma forever.

Hang in there, Girl. You can do it.

So sorry people who were supposed to be on your side turned against you!

hugs,
Barb

What a memorable day it will be when you gather Corbin up in your arms and take him with you! He's such a vibrant and happy looking little man. I'll be thinking of you this week as you go to get your son.

Also, I want to let you know that I have really come to look forward to logging on to your blog just hoping that you have posted something new. Although far away, your journey is kept close to my heart. I am so, so happy for you!

nicole said...

stacey i love the pics my invite has expired could you send me a new one because i cant figure out how to add your blog..its moon-babies@hotmail.com..thanks..

Nancy said...

Stacey, hang on Mama!!! You are almost there!

He is so adorable, reminds me of my Nicholas at that adorable age. I do know it is so hard to be so close to him, yet not have him in your arms forever! Sometimes it just doesn't make sense (or seem fair)!!!

I send good thoughts & many prayers over the pond to you!

Give Corbin extra special XXXOOO from me (as if you won't have unlimited XXXOOO of your own to give him, LOL!). Yes, yes . . . he so reminds me of my little guy!

Can't wait to see more pictures!!!

Shelly and Steve said...

What a journey you are having! I expected there to be ups and downs, but this has been quite the test of ones patience, fortitude, and negotiation skills. Tonight I will dream of you picking up Corbin tomorrow to finally take him HOME - and for now home is in your arms where what is best for him is now YOUR decision! Go Mama! xoxo Darla
