A year ago

I can't believe it. I was just looking back through old emails and I realized that on Oct. 5 we found out about Alihan (remember that phone call, Mom?) and then today (Oct. 7), Ted and I officially threw our hats into the adoption ring for the third time. It would be a week or so until our papers went out--had to get the money issues settled etc., but this was really the day that we decided. What a year it has been! And now, our little man has been home for 6 months, is in preschool, and today daycare, is starting to ice skate(hockey baby!) and is such a happy guy. And we are a family of 5--plus 2 dogs and 3 cats just to make it more interesting!
