This evening, Sean and I stood on a flat rock, polished smooth by the ocean, and stepped into the cold water together.
We weren’t born siblings, but we did this together to further cement our mutual adoption. It’s safe to say that we have really bonded in the past five days.
We’ve experienced many firsts together on our short vacation in the eastern provinces of Canada. It was the first time for both of us to visit Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Sean had his first lobster. I fulfilled childhood dreams with Sean by my side. We have laughed and talked and taken photos and blogged and got rained on and visited many new places together. And the meals we’ve shared… Oh my.
This trip out east has been sensational in so many ways.
It’s going to be really hard to leave him tomorrow and go back to instant messaging. But we will. It’s so much better than nothing!
