One year ago today, I was boarding a plane for London and then transferring to a flight for Bishkek, to meet Moonbeam for the first time! I boarded that plane feeling nervous, excited and a bit overwhelmed. I remember thinking, what does one wear to meet their daughter? (this became a non-issue when my luggage was delayed for four days :-) What an amazing trip! I had such a wonderful time and over the course of that week of visits I bonded with Hannah in a way I never expected. She became my daughter that week. And no matter how long it takes....I will wait to bring her home forever!
Part One here.
