A year in the life

I must say that I am blatantly stealing this post idea from Suzanne. I am doing so because it is a fantastic idea and it is partially my way of letting Suz know how much I admire her. I appreciate her distant friendship more than she probably knows.

So a few weeks ago she posted a “sticky” with the question “what do you want to know.” Granted her children are much older than mine and she adopted 2 at the same time, but I am constantly getting questions too. So here is your opportunity. What do you want to know? September 5th will mark our 1st Gotcha Day. One whole year of being a family of 3. It has been challenging and rewarding. But what about our last year, the boy’s progress, our lives would you like to know. I’ll hopefully get around to your questions sometime on the 5th, but we do have family time planned for that afternoon.

    Congratulations on a whole year. We’ve been home just short of a month and it’s a ball but tough. Was it more or less work than you imagined? How is Pickle doing on his speech? Did he speak Russian at all when you picked him up? Our two understand Russian very well but spoke almost nothing. So far they have about 4-8 words each in English.


  11. What moment over the last year do you wish you could freeze and time to relive whenever you wanted?

  12. or “freeze in time” if you aren’t typing impaired.
