Impromptu expedition

Some of our most easygoing new family friends, wonderful and admirable in their wisdom and self-sufficiency, invited us to tag along on Sunday to Salina Turda. New friends from Virginia Beach were in town, a connection made by their daughter who’s in Virginia Beach now with Work and Travel. As they rode in the car with us we realized how many places, experiences and people we have in common.

Marina born in Siberia is doing her PhD in US in counseling families and their children adopted from Russia. And we got to talk about the adoption journey, its joy and challenges.

It feels as if we are bucking down for the next season. It is exciting and daunting at the same time. Change is afoot.
