. . . that I would be in Bulgaria January 2-8, to bring Alexis home!?! Oops ;-) I began my journey yesterday afternoon as I boarded the first leg of my flights to Bulgaria. After the events of the past few weeks (we'll save all of those details for another post), I was VERY grateful for a fairly uneventful trip across the pond. Although my international flight to Frankfurt, Germany was an hour late getting in, I still managed to make it back through security and to my gate with 5 minutes to spare! I arrived in Sofia this afternoon, exhausted, but very happy to be back in this beautiful country to bring my Bulgarian firecracker home!
We will be leaving for Stara Zagora before the sun comes up tomorrow morning and, right now, I am just praying that I will actually be able to get a good night's sleep, despite the anticipation of seeing my precious girl for the first time in 5 months!
Tonight is the last night that Alexis will ever spend in an orphanage! Tomorrow the real adventure begins. . . .
