My girls are sleeping now, the younger two that is....on the other side of the world. They have no idea how much their mommy and daddy are wanting to go to them. They have no idea what will transpire in the next few weeks. They are simply existing in what they have known for much of their lives. Waking, eating, being tended to, sleeping again....does anyone try to get a smile out of them? Will they be used to interacting with those that adore them.

Meanwhile we re-do papers, rush to decorate for Christmas, stuff the freezer full of meals, wrap presents, prepare for the two birthdays following Christmas. It's the general holiday dash of things to do for us, but with the underlying desire to simply transport to the other side of our beautiful Earth. It's surreal at times, emotional at others....so hard to put words to. Our lives are in a different sort of space than those around us, it's odd. Everyday activities are now thought of as "how will this be when we get home" and the annual holiday season has become a think I am thankful for if only to help pass time, let alone the significance of it all.
We are so thankful, and so blessed...Thanksgiving and Christmas this year mean extra to us.

Our babies will be waking for breakfast before long....

I am ALWAYS thinking about what time it is in Vietnam and what all of our babies are doing there. Most of the time they are sleeping! You will have them soon. We are so blessed!
