300th post (just kidding)

So, on my dashboard of the blog it said that this was going to be my 300th blog post. I really felt that was monumental, so I've been thinking about what I could say to pay homage to this momentous occasion. I decided to take a stroll down memory lane and trying to come up with some thought provoking message of where we have been and where we are going, the highs and lows throughout this incredible journey. Then I realized I had like, 20 "drafts" that I needed to subtract from that number. A few of them I tried to write from my phone that ended up in binary code, but mostly the ones that I thought twice about posting. Posts that were just me blowing off steam, you know stuff like "if you don't have something nice to say....." So good news, I have a few weeks before my 300th anniversary. No pressure. So, something a little more, well, less momentous.
We have gotten A LOT of Target gift cards. We are saving the majority of them for necessities to get him after he comes home, things we may need. But I just couldn't resist this! I can't wait for it to arrive! It's made by Italibike and it will work as a trike, push or petal and will last until he is able to ride a big boy bike, with the adjustable seat. How cool, huh? So here's to post number 288.


  1. That is the coolest trike ever! Can't wait to see pictures of Charlie in it. :)

  2. How cute is that! I love it & I'm sure Charlie will have a great time on it. I can see you now, pushing him up the hill and him flying 110 mph down the hill. LOL It was my visual for the day!

  3. Hey thanks for the comment on our blog. Gosh the waiting after you meet your child must stink. Our first trip was canceled..twice. Then our referral was adopted by a Russian family. So, we continue to wait. Does your agency have a guess as to when you will travel back?

  4. Wow, that is some trike!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I'm glad you found it. I didn't start blogging until we were home with our son a year. I've tried to go back and retrace some of the steps we went through along the way to Pskov to meet and bring our son home.

    I found your blog a couple of months ago and have been following you ever since. I do hope you are able to get a court date as soon as the agreement is signed. Any word yet on the date of the next meetings?
