Adios Antigua, Muchas Gracias
Packing up our month's worth of luggage while preparing to leave Antigua was truly bittersweet today. I am not entirely prepared to process it tonight. To be brief, I swallowed hard, took a good look at my family, and put one foot in front of the other with joy in my heart realizing each step was one step closer to the our dreams of coming home with Luciana at long last.
I feel so overwhelmingly blessed to have had this time to bond with her and get to know her in such a special way. As we drove away from Antigua, I felt a kind of sadness I was surprised by, but it soon turned to excitement. We are so close. Tomorrow is one of those days we have imagined for so long, it is almost hard to believe it is here. In fact, it is going to come quickly and I really should get to bed.
With that said, I felt I had to at least post my own little thank you and farewell to the town that will forever hold a special place in my heart when I look at my baby girl. It is not her birthtown, but it is our own special, colorful, spirited little spot in the world. And, it is time to say goodbye.
If I can keep my eyes open a little longer, I'll get some pics from the lake up... if not, tomorrow. Oh... and by the way... TOMORROW IS OUR EMBASSY DAY!!! YIPPIE!!!!
