Good news doesn't always travel fast, but it does tend to surprise you when it arrives.
On Monday of this week I heard from my Fiance' that her adoption is nearly complete. In four days she will travel to Haiti to pick up her son and finally bring him home. The timing of this news is odd, considering that delay after delay caused her to be optimistic that after two years of waiting she might have her son home by Christmas. Now he will be home for Thanksgiving.
It seems now more than ever my decision to not seek a place on the 2010 primary ballot was prudent. My focus is needed right here, nurturing a bond with a little boy who will one day be my son.
