Manila is overwhelming, so it was nice to leave the city today. We went hiking at the Masungi Georeserve outside of the city limits. It was pretty awesome. It was a hike with lots of rope ladders, rope brides (oh, so this is how I die then?), giant hammocks and amazing views. It was a truly beautiful day. It is so easy to forget the beauty of the Philippines when you are in Manila. It is an extraordinary country with so much to offer. I really enjoyed the day. I made video of it below. Enjoy!!
We also had the final dinner of Derrick's reunion. It was a lot of fun and I became the unofficial photographer for the Class of 91!! Yay!! They really are great people. I am so glad I got to meet many of them. We got back to the room around 12:00 and had to be up by 4:00 to go to our outer island trip, so I haven't solved the sleep problem at all, but at least my stomach behaved and I didn't poop myself on a rope ladder.
My son Dillon was in foster care for 1,377 Days. We finalized our adoption of this firecracker boy in March of 2015 a few months before his 6th birthday. We are now in the process of adopting Dillon's younger brother "Jerry" from foster care! This blog will help paint a picture of two gay men raising two boys in this every changing world.
