Because of the delicate nature of our situation with Anya and also because of the recent arrests in Kemerovo of bloggers, I am going to have to keep things very simple while I am there. I plan to blog the truth, but may have to hold off on posting some of what I write till we return. I just can't say anything too negative about the region, the government, or anything else that might offend. It will be a test in patience, as I pride myself on speaking exactly what I think and feel. Problem is, I will not be in America. As they say, 'when in Rome'...
So, I will even have to take this post down while I am there! But I'm leaving it up until I get to Russia so that most of you will be aware of why my blog has suddenly gotten so happy and shiny (wink).
For the info I want to post about the orphanage kids, I may have to simply post it on my facebook page, which is fully private. That way I can post the real story. The one I tell here may be a little sanitized until I get home.
Thanks for taking this journey with me. I know I'm not alone.
See you on the other side of the Atlantic!
