Christine Royse Niles — Changing the world one word at a time


Day 20 – Friday, 1 January, 2010

Back home, back to regular life and home responsibilities, along with getting ready for Trip #2…I will be taking a brief hiatus from the blog this week while I try to enjoy the last couple days of Christmas Break, and scramble to do eight loads of laundry and repack.

I fly out next Sunday morning, returning to Ukraine to take custody of Lena on Tuesday the 12th. We’ll have about 3 hard days of solid travel, and then end up back in Kiev on Wednesday. We are due to fly into New York on Sunday evening, overnight in a hotel near JFK, and then fly home on Monday, the 18th.

See you all again in about a week!!

About Christine

I am a writer, a project manager, and a corporate refugee with a heart for orphans around the world. My two daughters were adopted from Ukraine at ages 12 and 14. I post about writing, chasing dreams, and making a difference in the world, and sometimes I share fun snippets of fiction in-progress.
