Our call came two years ago today. . .

Two years ago today we got the call about a child. We were only told all of the negative potentially lifelong health issues. We were not told if it was a boy or a girl and we were not told where this child was located. When we called the next day with our "yes, we are interested in this child. Very interested!" then we were told it was a boy and that he was in the Krasnoyarsk region of Russia.

I can't believe it was two years ago today!!

And to celebrate, we had some dear friends come over to dinner. . .during the preparations, a yellow jacket had gotten into the house and stung me on the neck!! Man, that hurts. . .but the memory that comes of the excitement felt two years ago makes it okay. . .

How cool to remember that day. My one year mark of my phone call is right around the corner. In some ways it seems like just yesterday you were in Russia. Wow does time fly!
