Noticeably absent from the blog has been an update about the little guy we are trying to adopt here in Thailand. That is because we are stuck in adoption limbo, a common woe of those who choose this path. Our timeline of 6 months from start to finish has long come and gone, and we have just now been granted an interview with the Thai government social worker. This will take place in May, and we will hopefully have a bit more information then.
In the meantime, we purchased a painting of the bodhi tree, made of little sheets of gold-leaf paper used to cover buddhas. At first, I was a little freaked out that we had bought something that was basically gold lame to put in the dining room, but now I just can't take eyes off it. With the way the sun changes all day, the painting looks different from every angle, and with the sun going down, it's stunning.
Sojo said she'll wait 10 years for Bodhi. Help me, Rhonda--a teenager AND a toddler! Not sure we can wait that long.
