On Friday, we celebrated Zan’s 2 and 1/2 birthday. We missed his second birthday by 2 weeks. It was a low key event. Just dinner at a local Japanese Steakhouse, a little cake and a couple of small gifts. Saturday, we met with a couple pursuing adoption. We shared our story and showed them the baby books the caretakers gave us (such a blessing). The boys threw blocks and wrestled…

All that threw me into an emotional time of reflection. I am amazed at the difference 5 months has made, both in our lives and the lives of our boys. D exhibits a level of compassion that I never had at that age. The boys have gotten so big. They talk, laugh, eat, sing, and dance. They tell me they love me. E’s eyes disappear when he smiles. Z runs so fast I cannot catch him (something I never thought I would be able to say). Today, we enjoyed the simple pleasure of eating lunch at Sonic and enjoying the breeze through the open windows. (A pleasure our “twins” would not be enjoying if they were still in China.)

If you think you would ever consider adoption, either domestic or international, message me. We would love to share our story. God’s story.
