Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

December 27, 2009

Friends,
Greetings from snowy, cold, New Jersey. I am here with my entire family celebrating Christmas and it’s been wonderful.

I hope you are all having a beautiful time with your families and loved ones this Holiday Season. I would like to thank you so much for reading and responding to my blog. It has brought me great joy being able to share my always evolving ruminations with you all, and to hear your thoughts back to me. Thanks so much!

Two quick related things before I go. One, eight years ago today, my family was running around like crazy getting ready to embark on our first trip to India. I will never forget the days in India or the days leading up to our departure.

Secondly, my sister just returned from living and working in the orphanage where she began her life in Pune, India. What a big step that was for her and one that I don’t think I could ever make. I look forward to talking with her about her experiences before I go back to Washington, D.C. and may share some of her thoughts with you all as well, depending on her level of comfort.

Again thanks for reading my blog and I will be posting more in the near future. If there is any particular topic that you would like to hear an adoptee’s thoughts on, please don’t hesitate to suggest something. I really want this to be a dialogue, not just me writing to the masses.
