Homeward Bound

We had our final visit with HotDog today. It was bittersweet. We love spending time with our little one, but we are anxious to get back home to our little boys. It has been a long two weeks and we are definitely homesick. On a positive note, Stu was able to get our first big smile out of HotDog this morning. She is so cute! It will be a long couple of months until we can come back and pick her up; I can't imagine how much she will change in the meantime. But we do feel good knowing that she will receive excellent care and attention in our absence. The caretakers really love those little children. We left a disposable camera so we hope they will take periodic pictures of her so we can have a little piece of the time we were away. And we hope to get updates/pictures from other families that will be visiting their children between our trips.
We're off to pack our bags now. Our plane leaves in exactly twelve hours (not that I'm counting or anything). If there are no delays (a big "if", I know), we should arrive home late Sunday night. I hope to post some pictures and a recap of our time here once we get settled back home.

I've missed so much. My apologies for that. Congratz on meeting your little girl. Hope your trip home was safe and that the reunion with the boys was wonderful.

I so remember how much I longed to be home with our son while away too. Once you get home, let us know on anticipated return date, etc. I'm very excited about your journey and look forward to learning more once home!

I can't seem to read the book each month for book club, but I do make time to read your blog. Congrats! I can't wait to meet Hot Dog and formally induct her into the MD Book Club.
