Two Year Anniversary

Jen left this in a comment on today's post about Matthew being 23 months old (as of yesterday).

I can't believe it's been almost 2 years exactly since you first posted about his birth mother wanting to meet with you. Also, I agree, overalls on little boys really are adorable!

That got me thinking.

So I went back into my archives.

It was exactly two years ago today that I first spoke to Matthew's mother on the phone. It was exactly two years ago today that I first knew a little, tiny bit about who my son would be. It was exactly two years ago today that everything changed. I didn't post until the next day but you can read about it here. My favorite part of the post is where I say something about how Garrett's world was about to be rocked. Yeah. Uh. His wasn't the only one.

Thanks, Jen, for reminding me.

In some ways it's been the shortest two years of my life.

And, in some, it's been the longest.

And continually I praise the Lord for the great things He has done in our family.


  1. Um, I'm glad to have reminded you. ;)

  2. That's not to say that I didn't know that we first talked to her, met with her, etc, at the end of January. It's just that I remember some of the other pertinent dates much better. Feb 28--Matthew's birthday. April 15--Adoption Agreement signed in court. April 21--legally adopted our boy!
