We are here!!!

We made it!!! We have arrived safely in Eastern Europe and I guess it’s time to spill on where in the world we actually are, well.......we are in Ukraine!! And we are so excited to finally be able to walk in the same footsteps as the adoptive families who have come before us and we finally get to experience the country where our sweet little boy is from. I have read and reread about this experience from other parents adopting from here and I can’t really believe it’s actually happening!! This evening we were joined by our close friends Beth and Lee Herrington, and we couldn’t ask for a better couple to be sharing this journey with. We didn’t do to much tonight but we did make it down to Independence Square and checked out the shops above and below ground that are around there, we followed that with dinner at a delicious little pizza place in one of the malls and then headed back to the apartment. Now its time to relax and go to bed. But before I go enjoy the first pictures of our trip!!:)

It's Really Happening!!!!

Hi Everyone!! Sorry I haven't posted a new blog lately but I promise I have a REALLY good excuse. Life in the Chellson household has been a very busy one over the last 3 weeks. We received our travel date 2 weeks less the 7 hours we will be boarding a plane to our sweet boys country!! And I can't even begin to tell you how excited and nervous and anxious and stressed we are right now! We have worked so hard for so long and the light at the end of this adoption tunnel is shinning VERY bright right now. The next couple of days are going to long and tiring but so worth every minute of it!!:) Our little boy is within our reach and we are sooo excited!!

I want to thank all of you again who keep coming back to read our blog and follow our journey. I can now promise you the best part is about to start! So stay tuned and check back often...more posts and pictures with our sweet boy in them will be coming soon!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I'm off to try and get some kind of sleep and will post more tomorrow!!

And the wait continues.........

Hi everyone, I just wanted to drop in and give a quick (and VERY short) update! I was hopping that the next post I would be writing would be about our travel date and talking all about our amazing travel plans....but I'm not! We have been waiting for over three weeks, which is typical, and I am starting to feel and sound like Dory from Finding Nemo when I tell people we are still waiting but in instead of hearing "Just keep swimming...just keep swimming...just keep swimming, swimming, swimming"....I hear "just keep waiting...just keep waiting...just keep waiting, waiting, waiting"... I know our wait is almost over and soon the post with the most exciting news IS coming but until then we will wait and get the house ready for our little guy to come home!!:)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thank you for the continued support! It really means the world to us and I promise as soon as we get any news I'll be posting about it!!
