Seoul Ready….

8 Days. Yep in 8 days we hop on a flight for a very long time and will eventually end up in Seoul, ready to meet out kiddos. We got word a few weeks back that Paxton was assigned a court date on February 10th, but around the same time a petition was filed to…

Living In The Unknown…

Alright so I’m a little over this. Lots of unknowns this past year…and it seems that we’ve gone from one to another to another. And in multiple areas of life. From work with opening the urgent/emergent center and having no idea how that was going to look (with me being in charge of it on…

Dear Paxton and Coppelia…..

Hey Little Ones, Just wanted you to know that we are getting ready for you. 2 car seats arrived this week thanks to the UPS guy. He also brought your new diaper bag (trust me, the one your brothers all used was shot, it’s brown with pink accents, sorry Paxton, I’m not a fan of…

Paxton’s 12th Package

I’m really hoping I went to the post office for the last time this past weekend to mail a package off to a traveling family. All in all this makes a total of 35….20 for Edric while we were waiting (17 gallon size packages, a Christmas and 2 birthday packages), 13 for Paxton (12 gallon…

A Second Approval….

On Friday we got word that Coppelia’s exit permission had been approved by the Korean government. Sometime this week her file will be submitted to the Korean court system. From there we wait for a court date. But the part that typically takes the longest is now over! We are still waiting for a court…

At This Time….

And so I’ve come to realize I have been living in a state of “when such and such happens…then I can feel….” And so on. “When I know if we are going to be making 2 or 3 or 4 trips to Korea…” “When Coppelia and Paxton are both home then…” “When we are able…

And Then It All Changes…

And so we thought on Wednesday that our prayers had been answered and Coppelia and Paxton would go through court together. We got word late Thursday night that the agency that Coppelia is with had changed their mind. They said that they would not go through with submitting both cases together. And so we had…

And Trust…..

Man that is hard. This whole trust thing. And you’d think I’d have it down by now….but no, still struggling with it. Sometimes way more than I think I should. We are having trouble selling our house. There’s a good chance that we are not going to be able to buy the house that we…

For Sale…

So I really didn’t see that coming. I think had you told me 2 weeks ago that we were going to be under contract on a house and have our house on the market I would have laughed. I kind of feel like that is how this year has gone…had you told me New Years…

Happy April

  I know we are already a week into April, but I was out of internet range and connection last week, so for me the month is still just beginning. And I’m glad it’s April. I don’t have anything bad against March, but man this past March was rough. And it wasn’t just one thing…it…
