Confession

Both Alex and Teague stayed in their pajamas until after their nap – 3:30ish. I can’t even say that no one saw them. We spent most of the morning outside playing in front of our house, but it seemed mean to make them go inside just for clothes.

Bowing Our Heads And Closing Eyes

We’ve been working with Alex to bow his head and close his eyes while saying the blessing before dinner. When we sat down tonight he looked at Teague (who is wearing an eye patch – one hour a day per his foster mother’s instructions) and pointed out that Teague only had to close one eye….

Meeting The Family (And Neighbors)

Alex woke up at his normal 7 am and we went to play with Gam (who had to play too because she was sleeping on the couch). Teague woke up at 8 and Wade joined us all for the meeting of brothers. (We also got a morning delivery of a fruit bouquet just in time…

    Beautiful moments!

    I’ll be sure to keep watching this space!

A New Day

Teague woke up this morning and he was happy! This was the first time we hadn’t seen shy or crying. He was inquisitive and giggled. The best was when we realized he liked to hug and snuggle. While we were getting him ready for a bath (hence no clothes), Wade picked him up and Teague…

Family Day

Last week I was doing some last minute internet searching to answer some random questions I had about adopting in Korea. I stumbled upon a woman’s blog who had traveled in August to pick up her 23 month old son. She mentioned something I had never seen before – she hired a photographer for the…

    Hey! I just started following your blog from our mutual friend Amy S who let us know of the wonderful news about Teague. (We actually talked at her baby shower a few years back.) This post and pictures brought tears to my eyes. I went back and read up a bit on your journey and so inspired. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to seeing the amazing transition of your family! Best of luck.

Seoul – Day Two

Today we were on our own and I had some shopping on my agenda. Wade found a wonderful site for expats (see here) and we headed to Itaewon. I found some souvenirs and we had a fantastic lunch at Sugi’s. Lunch was definitely American food, but superb. I would choose it over most local places…

Seoul – Day One

Our adoption agency arranged a “City Tour” for us today. Student volunteers took us to Gyeongbokgung – a palace near our hotel, Insadong (a street market), and lunch in a Korean restaurant (Wade chose Bee Bim Bop with octopus). I hadn’t realized how many families would be traveling at the same time (normally it is…

Almost There

The flight from Milwaukee to Minneapolis went pretty quickly. The four hour layover was horrible. Then we boarded the flight for Japan. I watched three movies, finished my book, ate two dinners, ate one breakfast, and managed to sleep a few hours. When I wasn’t watching a movie I enjoyed tracking our progress on my…
