Hubby Hijacks the Blog...

It won't happen often, but occasionally Shelly will be too pooped to post. Today is one of those days. Usually her creative energy (aided by caffeine) is enough to propel her forward. But two orphanage visits, four crazy cab rides and a visit to the opera to see "Madame Butterfly" were a bit much, so I'll fill in as best I can. (Hey, how was I supposed to know that "Madame Butterfly" was set in Japan, performed in Italian and included sub-titles in the local tongue we're still trying to figure out? Maybe next time we'll read the Cliff Notes before the performance instead of after.)

It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But sometimes just one word is enough...

Have a great Friday and a blessed Easter Weekend.

  2. That was PRICELESS! So much love already. (And my husband won't tell you himself, but he was standing over my shoulder in quiet tears watching this.)

    The video clips are a wonderful addition to the beautiful and poignant photos. SO, SO happy for all of you! What an amazing journey. I am thrilled and proud to have played a small part and can not wait to give Sarah a very big hug. Love to you all!
