We welcomed a boy into our home.
We opened our hearts to a love that would stretch across oceans.
We began our journey with Tejan.
I can hardly believe it's been a year since he came.
It's been a tough week for me... the marking of time always gets me in one way or another... and in this case, I've been struggling with the emotion of acknowledging that a year ago we were getting to know him... I have such vivid memories of the challenge of those first few days.
How can it possibly have been a year ago?
I still miss him terribly.
His scrawny little hand in mine.
While I plug through my days and find many areas of my life completely back to 'normal', I am amazed to find the hole in my heart is no smaller with the passage of time.
I think I thought it would be.
