The Song "Home"

Thanks to a little help from Kim, I was able to add in the playlist to my blog. The first song I added is "Home" sung by Blake Shelton. Some might have heard it sung by Josh Groban I believe. The song doesn't completely "fit" in this whole adoption voyage but it does have a special meaning to me.

After many hours on 2 different planes, seeing 3 different countries and continents, and after I think about 22 hours, Mike and I finally landed at JFK airport in New York. We were exhuasted but we still had a 2 to 2 1/2 hour car ride to get back home. Once we got settled and were waiting in traffic (oh joy, welcome in NYC!) this song is the first one that I heard on the radio. It almost sent me into tears. Here I was going home, after an airplane ride, yet I did feel alone. I began to question where my home now was. Home hasn't seemed like home since that day. Am I home or is my home in Russia? I feel torn apart. This song will always be close to my heart. I have bought the CD and when I feel sad, or just need a moment, I like to listen to it and I feel a little better. It helps me to connect with Colby while he is so far away. A little sappy, huh? I'm not sure if you all can relate, or can understand, but even still, the song is just beautiful so listen to it and enjoy!

Have I told you I check your blog daily of course for any updates, but now because I just love the song, too!

Hope you finish up the p/w, get it back to Russia, and find yourselves traveling there SOON!

Do whatever you can to keep your chin up. I am thinking of you as we approach our anniversary. I hope to keep in touch with you when you hit this milestone and we can look back on all of this and breathe a sigh that it's all done and everyone is where they are supposed to be. We are thinking of you and hope you have a happy holiday season despite your heart being in Russia. We know exactly how you are feeling right now. Keep the faith, Colby needs you to stay positive.
