6 Months

This is an interesting week. Because today, Tuesday, August 12, 2008 marks 6 months since we received Ethan on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 (i.e., “gothcha day”), we’re reliving and experiencing even more memories and flashbacks (of our time in Korea) than normal.

Yesterday marked 6 months since we met Ethan for the first time (see 1,000 Words and The Meeting for what our perspective back then in Korea).

Thursday will be 6 months since we arrived home on the longest Valentine’s Day ever (due to the time zone difference, we had an extra 14 hours of Valentine’s Day). See also First Hours with Ethan and Ethan is Home!.

While we will celebrate “gotcha day” every year in our home, the 6 month milestone is meaningful, too. Ethan spent 6 months in a foster home (after 2 months in the SWS hospital/home), a milestone that we have now matched!

    Hello!!!
    Thanks for sending the newletter and wonderful announcement about Ethan.
    What a great picture and what a great gift from the Lord for all of you.
    I have on your website for an hour, looking at pictures and reading your news, ideas and observations. It has been an enjoyable visit.
    Congratulations on completing your doctorates, your moves, and this new parenting venture. How exciting.

    We are doing well. I’ve had some summertime out of the office, but it’s been a busy summer anyway. Now, I’m back to work at Westmore, with Fridays out of the office.
    Let me know when you are coming to visit Cleveland, so we can catch up with one another.
    Love and blessings to all of you,
    Gail
