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.
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!
