One Year Ago Today - Part 1

One year ago today, we set out on an amazing journey. A journey to Ukraine, with a newborn in tow, to meet our son, Maksim.

6:30 AM before our first flight.

Our first flight was 4.5 hours to Dulles airport. Then we boarded our 10 hour flight to Frankfurt, Germany (AKA: The worst airport EVER!)

We took one last flight to Kiev, and like a surreal dream, we were in our son's country, just 3 days away from meeting him.

First stop was the grocery store and I was sure to get myself some of the chocolate every mom raves about.

Yum! You will never want an American candy bar again!!

We passed out and slept off and on until we felt human again.... Our adoption ministry appointment was coming just the next day.

To be continued...
