One year ago today...

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.

His laughter.

His helpfulness.

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.
