The episode of Wait for Me, the Russian reality show that reunited our long-separated family, aired this week in Russia. The segment can be viewed here. Watching it now still brings tears to my eyes. It was such a powerful experience.
Uncle Vlad is very adamant about our coming back out there to visit and meet the rest of the family. (We've been emailing-- in Russian (courtesy of Google Translate)-- which is a whole other level of interesting...) I honestly can't wait to do so-- it's just a matter of working out the time and expense. Traveling to Russia ain't cheap, as we learned this last trip! But I'm going to save my rubles and make it work-- after all this time, it feels like a duty to meet them all. A duty that's fun and exciting.
