Korea Camp 2018

So I keep delaying writing this post because I want to include the photos that I took on my actual camera and not just the ones I took on my phone. Well….at this rate I might get the post written sometime in 2020, and so I decided to just use the few photos on my…

Paxton-11 Months Home!

Paxton has been home 11 months! We will soon be celebrating 1 year home and his family day! It’s crazy to think that it has almost been a year, but it is also hard to remember what life was like before this little guy joined our family.  This evening when I was writing on the…

Coppelia-10 Months Home!

Coppelia has been home for 10 months! (and a couple of days). Her language and speech are improving with each day, she is starting to put two words together more often and we have really been working on that. Her words aren’t all that clear most of the time but they are becoming more and…

Paxton-10 Months Home!

Paxton has been home 10 months and a few days (because like usual I am a couple of days behind). He is small but mighty. He doesn’t seem to understand that he is not as big as Leighton and strongly believes he can do whatever anyone else can do and will set out to prove…

4 Years Ago Today….

4 years ago today Clint and I sat in an office just a short drive from our house today and officially began the process to bring Edric JoonSoo home. It was a late Monday afternoon, we had received his file just the Friday before and made our decision shortly after opening and reviewing his file…

Coppelia-8 Months Home

Coppelia has been home and with us for 8 months. We actually had her Early Interventions update meeting yesterday with her case worker and it is amazing how far she has come. I often get overwhelmed when I think about how far behind she is with speech, but then I remember where she was when…

Coppélia Home 7 Months and Paxton Home 8 Months!

Maybe it’s because I’m lazy maybe it’s because life has been busy, maybe it’s because I’m exhausted from chasing tiny humans around all day, but for whatever reason I’m combining these two posts into one this month. Clint and I have said it both a number of times, these two are more “two-year-old” than any…

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…

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…
