It is Monday, late, now, Tuesday morning. Julia is asleep in Sarah's bedroom which we are using for the week. Julia is having a very nice time in Maryland. She is comfortable -- eating well, drawing with Lisa's markers and colored pencils on big pieces of news print. She went food shopping with Lisa when I had a massage, and generally was content following us around.
I finished this post but it was gobbled up by blogger.
Lisa is out getting a hair cut. Julia is sleeping and I can write a bit. Feeling overwhelmed by my lack of focus on my LEND leadership project. Feeling wonder at having that writin' feeling without knowing what I should do about it. Wondering about those adoption teases in my comments -- hey, I need to know more! But also comfortable, like my kid. Being looked after and cherished by friends. It is so weird that David is not here but good, so good to be loved.
I cooked Chinese last night. I have been cooking at home -- we do not starve by any means -- but Julia is in her reduced variety of food phase of childhood and she wants what she known, preferably rice and bok choi. Which I made as part of last night's dinner. It was good to cook for people to eat! I have to start having friends over to my house again. And cook!
More later. Maybe. Maybe.
Oh, and to those commentors who teased me with hints of China opening up to singles, give me more information, please!!! Or tell me who to contact, which agency is thinking about testing the waters. By sometime next year, I would be in a good place to start the process to find a Chinese sister for my girls.
