As of today, Alex, Matt and I have been together for a full year! Thinking back, I get overwhelmed at what an emotional day it was. It truly was heartbreaking leaving the SWS after seeing how much Alex’s foster mom loved him – and we knew how much she was going to miss him. Some of you commented about the hug Alex, his foster mom and I shared in our flashback show – it was a real special moment. I had to cut that very short, because those of you who have been there know how personal that can be. I wanted to share it with all of you since you have been with us on our journey – but at the same time, I wanted to keep it private (so you got a glimpse before the tears started flowing).
We didn’t do much tonight to celebrate, just some extra special cuddles at bedtime. This weekend we will be having a homemade Korean meal (wish us luck), and perhaps a treat or two for Alex. I wish we had tacken a new family shot tonight – but Alex is coming down with a cold, and I’m getting over one, so tonight wasn’t the best for photos – this weekend for sure.
Since I’ve been doing photo flashback, here are a couple from one year ago today.
