7 weeks...so hard to believe

It's so hard to believe that 7 weeks ago we were getting the boys at Chung Yi. I was thinking about this post earlier and what I was going to say. You know when people say "I can't remember life without him/her?" I always think that's so cliche'. But it's really true. Even now. I've tried to remember what it was like without them, how it was around the house with just Adam and Jani. Probably much quieter for sure! But it's hard to remember just the 4 of us. It blows me away that just in 6 weeks of being home, all 6 of us seemed to have morphed into the family unit I knew we would be.

Part of me can't wait to start this journey again. But part of me isn't. It's the rat race of doing the paperwork and waiting for everything to go thru. But I know in the end there will be this darling little face that looks at me and calls me Mommy. And I see Jani's pictures from just 3 years ago. From the baby she was to the big girl she is now. And it makes you want to hold that baby all over again.

So here's to 7 weeks. Cheers.

That is too cool! I am so glad that things are working out well for you guys and that there is a "family" formed yet again. Adoption will never cease to amaze me.
