On Aug. 6th, 2010 the USA suspended adoptions in Nepal.
I was stranded Nepal with my adopted son while I waited for the US Govt. to grant him a Visa. I was able to return home with him on January 11, 2011 after nearly 4 months in Nepal.
Children are abandoned by their families each and every day in Nepal. As Buddhism suggests, let's send our prayers on the wind to help these children who have been left behind.

Fresh Air, Clean Pani
Jenni, Pukar and Steve
Here we are skate skiing out my back door! Pukar LOVES being in the sled and having mommy pull him. He also loves downhill sledding, hot-tubbing, hot chocolate with fresh whip cream, warm banana bread, his great ski outfit, new home, soft bed, all the attention and all the toys!!! He's a super social little boy, and is friendly with everyone. He had had almost zero problems adjusting to being in America, and in fact it feels better than it ever has being his mommy. We are having so much fun! I wish that work didn't have to come into the picture as I am just loving being a stay-at-home mom and enjoying all this stress-free time with my little guy. His English is getting better and better, and everyone is impressed with how much he already knows. We have been pretty social because of his ease with people and the move, so I have spent many nights at friends houses having dinner and socializing with other kids. We have visited his new pre-school, Mountain Sprouts, and he loved it, which I don't blame him it's so darn cool. We also visited Lisi and her llama farm and he didn't want to leave. We've had a great time with my boyfriend Steve and his kids Ellie and Lucas, and he talks about them every day, and we got a new fish, named Tiger who is bright red male betta. He has so many Aunties who he loves, especially his Auntie Bird (who is a dear male friend of mine) and his Auntie Joy, who I'm sure he remembers from Nepal. Life is good. Really, really good.
