One year ago this week our lives changed forever

I am writing this now because I was at work on the 24th....

On Sunday it was exactly one year since the day Kevin was put in our arms forever.

I'll never forget Shannon, my CW, calling me on a Tuesday night to tell me my PINK appointment was for the following Monday morning and that I had to be in Guatemala on Friday to pick up Kevin. OMG! Three days notice to book my flights, arrange child care for Katie, Pug care for Cassie, get the two big dogs boarded, pack, notify work, etc. It was an absolute whirlwind.

One year ago today was our Embassy appointment, and one year ago Friday we were all home, together, forever.

I've been watching the montages I made during the process and the memories are flooding back. I'm including the videos in case you'd like to go down memory lane with me...

Just click on the thumbnails if you'd like to view them.

I remember this, I was SO sleep deprived with my two just home and I was stalking your blog constantly for your turn! And then, whoosh - you were on your way! Yay!

Can you believe it's been a year!!!

Congrats on your ONE YEAR HOME!!! It's been a joy to share it with you.

Congratulations on one year! I know the wait seemed like it was an eternity, but the past year has just flown by.

I only got a chance to watch the last photo clip in it's entirty, but it seems like Kevin grew so much in 4 months. Love the pics!

One year already? Wow. I'm so happy for all of you - you deserve the best. :)

It doesn't seem like a year ago that it was all happening. I'm so happy for you and Roni-and Katie and the pups and most especially for Kevin.
