I had an obvious light bulb moment here: international adoption is not compatible with the "planner" personality. :) Lol! It's so funny/odd to think about traveling to a new place and staying there for 6 weeks, but not being able to really plan for it. I am used to micro-managing every aspect of trips, from weekend getaways to family vacations, and the more detail we have, the better. This is completely different though! We don't know what part of the country we will be traveling to, the history of the city and/or where we will even be staying or when. One part of me wants to embrace the adventure, but the other part of me is freaking out! Ha ha. I think I would be more carefree about it if we didn't have our three boys in tow. I am not even sure how to prepare?
We have our passports, luggage and Polish language app on my iPad, but that's about it!
I will admit to slacking these last couple of months , but I think it's been a necessary detachment. I have been trying to resume life as usual until we get some news. I do have a question for adoptive families though. Is there anything special we should bring for our first visit? I would like to leave our daughter with something she could keep until we return but I'm not sure if there are any special restrictions? In my "un-planning" I feel like I still need to slightly plan for things like that. I know if our child is in an orphanage, we may be limited? I think I read that somewhere.
Going private soon.....
