one month ago...

One month ago today Paxton was ours forever. We left early from Itaweon market in Seoul. We took the subway back to Eastern and looked for a flower shop to get for his foster mother. We finally found some and went back upstairs to our room for just a few mintues. We were supposed to meet Ms. Ahn in the lobby at 3. We got there about 2:45 b/c the times we had met before she had been early. She wasn't there yet. So we waited. Finally in she comes. Of course you couldn't see him b/c he was under her coat on her back. It is a moment I'll never forget. She came in and unwrapped him and handed him to us. We talked for a few moments. She played with him in the floor. She gave us a few of his things and a few instructions. We took several pictures and just visited in the lobby for a little bit longer. After a while the social worker there, said take him to the elevator, it's time to go. So we got all of our things together. Mrs. Ahn gave me a hug goodbye and Paxton a kiss and walked away. As she walked away I could see tears in her eyes. She loved him very much. He was very attached to her. And that was it. We got into the elevator and went to our room and just hugged together thanking God for the precious gift He had given to us.

Prayers for everyone traveling home this week. In a month, you'll be remembering that it was only a month ago that your precious ones came into your homes! I can't wait to read all about it!
