PunditMom Photo Saturday — A Peek at the Trip We’ve Been Waiting For

Sat, July 4, 2009

Moms & Politics

I’ve been waiting for this trip for a long time. We’ve been informally planning it since PunditGirl was a baby and now the wheels are in motion. More importantly, the airline tickets have been obtained with the frequent flier miles we’ve been hoarding since we stepped off the plane with our PunditBaby in January 2001. The itinerary is taking shape and we’ll soon be getting together with a few of the other adoptive families who will be sharing this “homeland” tour with us.

So while we’re off visiting family this weekend, I wanted to share this news with you! Next March, the PunditMom family will be heading off to China to give PunditGirl her first chance to explore her birth country.

And, just as exciting, PunditGirl and I are going to start a new blog soon to keep track of our trip preparation, how we’re all feeling about this adventure and, ultimately, to share our trip with you as we experience it! I’m thinking there might be a book in this somewhere, too — maybe something like the one PunditGirl’s photo is already in!

We’ll sight see, visit her hometown and hopefully get to meet with the head nanny of the baby home who will be able to talk with PunditGirl a little bit about her time there, maybe filling in some of the holes about her first months that she asks about frequently. It’s scary and exciting all at the same time, so we figured what better way to document this than by sharing!

More to come soon. In the meantime, have a great holiday weekend.

    Congratulations! What a wonderful event to look forward to. I'm sure you will have no trouble finding fodder for a blog and/or book. Thanks for the comment on my photos, btw. I'm trying to put together a diary of sorts of Finland over the next year as I research the history of Finnish women for a novel I'm writing.

    How wonderful! I'm a lurker here, but I had to comment on this post, as my husband and I adopted our now five-year-old from China in 2005. I'm looking forward to reading all about the trip, whether in a blog or book format.

    Congrats on it coming together. How exciting for both of you!! Amazing to go back and talk to the nanny of the baby home. A blog to chronicle the journey and preparations sounds fun.
