Amazing. It was five years ago today.
What? Well, we had just gotten in the car to go over to Pat's parents for dinner and my cell phone rang. I didn't recognize the number and almost ignored it. I'm so glad I didn't!
It was our Social Worker calling on her cell phone (thus why I didn't recognize the number!) and she had news of a child, on the other side of the world. There were some scary medical terms, but the child seemed to be okay. A little research completed on our part and we called her back to say, Yes. We are interested in this child. There were no pictures and no formal medical information available.
It wasn't until few hours later that we found out it was a boy and he was in Krasnoyarsk.
And then we were officially registered in Region.
And I began to fall head over heals in love with my son.
