...well, almost a year. Almost a year since we first went to the information meeting at CHI. I remember that it was before Christmas, but not the exact date, so let's just say it's been a year.
And, what a year. We never could have known that just 5 short months after we turned in our application, that we would walk into CHI again to see this beautiful face.
Our son. It is amazing to even think about it - and it happened to us! While I was adding our timeline to the blog (it was deleted in the re-design project), I was thinking about how, one year ago, we told our family that there was a small chance our child (or children then!) would be home for Christmas the next year. I was secretly hoping for Fall.
And, then early last Spring (probably right after CHI was licensed) I said to Kevin that perhaps there was a possibility we could get in before the courts closed in the Summer. His answer: "It would take a series of small miracles for that to happen." And, I believe that is just what happened - a series of small miracles that brought us to our own unbelievable miracle. I know that this also included the heartbreak of one very amazing woman, and she is often in my thoughts.
And, now that we've been home for 4 months (well 4 months on the 13th), I am still in awe over how things fell into place. Micah is such a special little being, and I know I say it all the time, but we are so blessed to have him here with us; to have the honor of being his parents.
And, seriously, could he be any cuter? :)
