Court And Palaces….

It’s actually Saturday morning in Seoul as I type this, but Paxton is still sleeping in the bed next to me and I don’t know if I’ll get another chance to share. Court went really well. We were nervous because the agency for Coppelia was concerned about how Paxton was going to do in court…

Introducing Paxton KaOn Armstrong!

It’s all official, Paxton is officially an Armstrong! Today has actually gone really well. Clint is busy giving Paxton his night time bath right now so I’m taking a few minutes to share and introduce the newest member of our family. All of Paxton’s sweet foster family came with him to the agency today. They…

And Day #2 (And A Happy Birthday)….

So my day started early. Like way early. Like suddenly my body missed the fact that I was in a different time zone and really thought 2AM was a great time to be wide awake. And stay awake. Despite whatever I did. And so 4 hours later when it was actually an appropriate time to…

Day #1 Korea Trip #????….

Really I’m not sure what number trip we are on at this point. I’ve got 4 Korea stamps in my passport at this point so I guess it is Trip #4? (2 trips for Edric, one for Paxton last month and then this one?). Technically it is trip 2 for Paxton and trip 1 for…

For Our Family And Friends…

As we get ready to bring Paxton home next week and Coppelia sometime in the next 4-6 weeks we wanted to let people know what to expect and how people can best support us and them during this time. First off we invite everyone to the airport next Saturday the 25th, we will be flying…

Packing For Trip #2…

And here we are, just a few days from take off for trip #2. We packed this past weekend because this week is jam packed and then some. And so I sat down on Saturday morning with all sorts of things for a little boy on the other side of the world and got all…

Final Days As A Family Of 5…

This past Saturday we made it a family day. It’s the last time it will just be just the 5 of us.  We decided to spend the afternoon hiking one of the trails close to our house. We have hiked this one a number of times, it is a little over 3 miles round trip…

Final Approval And Faithfullness….

A year ago this week our paperwork went to Korea for Paxton. We were excited to be a family of 6 and I was excited to be a “boy mom” to 4 boys. Little did we know that less than a week after our paperwork was sent we were going to get a phone call…

The Final Countdown Is On….

The bottom of the page is closer than the top. That means Paxton is coming home soon! We got word this week that the judge issued his preliminary approval on 2/20 which means we are in the final 15 day count down to final approval.  The timing should be just about right, we will be…

Seoul Bound…Again…

And now that we have been back home a few days and are starting to get our days and nights reconfigured (of course I’ve spent the past two nights working overnight shifts so I may still have a bit to go…) we are busy making plans for our second trip back. We got official word…
