Four years ago I was on the other side of the world, in the city of Kragujevac, Serbia.
It is the day I was allowed to take this little man out of foster care!
It was a day of many sad goodbyes.
Goodbye to a family who had loved and cared for him for 2 1/2 years.
Goodbye to the foods he had always known.
Goodbye to the language he understood.
Goodbye to a life as one of "the have nots".
There were good goodbyes too!
Goodbye to being hidden away.
Goodbye to being forgotten and devalued.
I was a new mom again, and had no idea the wild ride ahead of me!
