buckle your seat belts… this ride will begin in a few moments

“A ship is always safe at the shore – but that is NOT what it is built for.”  ~ Albert Einstein

So… follow-up with psychiatrist… family meeting… foreseeable pros and cons discussed… and the decision is YES!

Yes, we will open our home and our hearts to Michael… 8 years old… afraid of the dark… delightful southern draw… looking for a safe, forever home.

Michael who lives just a 6 hour car drive away from us.  No dealing with another language, no 8+ hours of flying, no bribing officials for a predictable process and no civil war.  My heart  aches for all those children in Ukraine who will likely not escape but I breathe a self-serving sigh of relief and know that our decisions were the best not only for ourselves but more importantly for Rachel.

Michael who LOVES superheros… most likely because they promise him protection.  Did I mention that he is 1/2 Hulk?

I really don’t have a whole lot of information but barring any unforeseen obstacles… which, of course, would not be anything new… more to come.  For now – we will absorb the possibilities of this new adventure.
