A Long Way

We've come a long way, baby!


The loss of the sad, scared look and the addition of the big smile brings me great joy.  But my favorite is the return of the sparkle in his eye....even if it is oftentimes the result of him being naughty!  :-)

2 Years Ago Today...

OK, So it's been a little while since I've posted on here.  I'll just go ahead and admit that I'm having a bit of an indecision problem with regards to what to share, how to share, and if I even want to share.  I love to write.  It's therapeutic for me, but sometimes I feel like I need to control who will be reading what I write.  Anyway....

Today, I wanted to share because it's been exactly 2 years since we arrived at that airport in D.C., completely unaware of what our life would look like for the next week, month, year, lifetime. 


That first year was hard.  Much harder than we had anticipated, yet not as hard as we had feared it could be.  But, we survived.  Now, we have 2 years under our belts (a few extra pounds, too, but that's a whole other issue.).  And we have gone from surviving to thriving.  Thank you, Jesus.

It's still hard sometimes, and Markos is definitely more difficult loud exhausting challenging than the other two.  However, we've reached a place where we know we can do this thing.  We will make it.  Life is good.

Here's a little video montage of pictures from Year 2.  No more cocooning.  No more hiding.  It's full speed ahead.
