18/360 - an anniversary

Last week, when we were celebrating the 9th birthday of my last "homemade" baby, we were also quietly marking the anniversary of another event. Three years ago last Monday, we woke up to the news that while we had been sleeping, on the other side of a world, an Ethiopian judge had seen fit to make us parents for the last time.

At long last, after 8 months of waiting, wondering, fretting, hoping, our Bear was finally our Bear.

It would still be a few weeks before he would come home to us, but on that day he was officially our son.

We're so glad he's YOUR Bear. I personally think he's terrific and can't picture your family as "complete" without his Batman-ness! Congrats on 3 years!!
