Happy 3rd Birthday Coppélia Jiyun!

Coppélia’s 3rd birthday is today. 3 years ago Clint and I were actually in South Korea flying home from Edric’s court date the day before. I was tearful getting on the plane knowing that we were leaving Edric behind. Little did I know that we were actually leaving 3 babies behind, Edric with his foster…

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…

Happy 3rd Birthday Paxton!

On Sunday we celebrated Paxton turning 3! He knew the day was all about him too. And in case he forgot Coppélia sang Happy To You (her version of Happy birthday) to him all day long (VERY LOUDLY). After getting ready for church he opened his gift from Clint’s parents which was a big truck…

Happy 5th Birthday Edric!

Yesterday Edric turned 5. Poor guy had been sick most of the weekend but was finally on the mend. When he was asked what he wanted to do for his birthday he told us that he wanted to go to lunch with just mommy and daddy and to eat birthday cake. He also added in…

Coppelia 1 Year Home!

Last Saturday we marked Coppelia being home for one year! With the ballet and everything it was a busy week and so I am finally getting around to posting about it. It is crazy to think that it has already been a year, but also amazing to watch how far she has come. Of the…

Coppelia 11 Months Home!

So I’m a little late on posting this, but life has been a bit crazy. Actually we are just a few weeks away from celebrating Coppelia being home for a year. But before we rush to 1 year, here’s a little post about 11 months home. Coppelia has her opinions and she will quickly let…

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…

877 Days…

877 is the number of days that Edric was in Korea before coming home, and on February 15th he reached 877 days home! Crazy to think that he has been home that long already, but then it is also hard to think about what life was like before he joined our family. Edric has grown…

And 1 Year Since Coppélia’s First Meeting…

And we also celebrate our first meeting with Coppélia this week as well. We did not yet have a court date for her at the time of our meeting (it actually came just 24 hours later), but the agency allowed us to meet her while we were already there in Seoul. (I think if they…

1 Year Since A First Meeting…

This month is going to be a lot of Korea, a lot of milestones, and such on the blog so get ready…. A year ago today (minus the time change which really makes it a year ago yesterday evening…but whatever), Clint and I made our way across Seoul on the subway to our agency and…
