Paxton-6 Months Home (and a few days)….

Paxton has been home for 6 months as of last Monday! It took me a few extra days to get his photo taken because life happens and I always remembered at the wrong time. But we got the photo and are celebrating that he has been with us 1/2 a year! I think I’ve said…

Edric-2 Years Home!

On Saturday September 23rd we celebrated Edric being home 2 years. Because of my work schedule we decided to celebrate on the 24th. When I asked Edric about a month ago what he wanted to have for dinner to celebrate his family day he told me “chocolate pie.” I asked him what he wanted besides…

Coppelia-5 Months Home!

These past few days have been filled with mile stones. On Thursday the 21st we celebrated Coppelia being home for 5 months. It is amazing how far she has come in so short amount of time. It is been fun to watch her get more comfortable and get to know her and her personality. Her…

Paxton-5 Months Home!

We celebrated Paxton being home 5 months on Friday. And while he’s learned that he is two and has some very set opinions on things now, he is still such a sweet boy who loves to laugh a giggle.  Trucks are still his favorite thing and he usually asks for a car with his breakfast….

Some Days…

Actually let me take that back….EVERY DAY feels like a marathon. Or a VERY LONG race. And that’s just by 9AM…there are many more hours left in the day by that point and I’m usually ready to throw up the white flag.  It’s really not all that bad. And there are a lot of laughs…

August 21, 2015 & 2017…

Same day…2 years apart. Little did we know 2 years ago the significance that this day would be. 2 years ago Clint and I boarded a plane in Seoul to fly home. I cried knowing that we were leaving Edric behind. Little did I know that Paxton was in the babies home and Coppelia was…

Dear Edric-2017…

Hey buddy, it was 2 years ago today that we met you for the first time in a crowded little hot room in the middle of Seoul. A journey that had literally begun 3 years before was finally approaching the end in that little room.  You were just a tiny little peanut and really not…

Coppelia-3 Months Home!

Our little dinosaur has been home 3 months! We call her our little dino because she still growls a lot and kind of walks like a T-Rex (or how I think a T-Rex would walk). We’ve made up a song to “I’m A Little Tea-Pot” only we call it “I’m A Little Dinosaur” and sing…

More Attachement…

Each of our three little blessings grieved differently and has attached differently. Edric went into total shut down mode for months and had a lot of anger and fear. That fear is still there and I think unknown to him with new situations I think he still has a fear that everything he has ever…

Paxton-3 Months Home!

Paxton has been home 3 months (and a few days because I’m a couple days late posting as usual). He is talking up a storm and repeating things and initiating his own sentences and saying all sorts of things. Some things are still in Korean, like earlier today he was looking at a book with…

21 Months And 21 Months…

21 months ago today Edric JoonSoo landed with us in Denver and officially met his brothers and joined our family. 21 months before that to the day, just 2 days before Christmas of 2013 Clint and I sat in the adoption agency office signing papers for Edric to make us officially matched and waiting for…
