A Year Ago

* Nap time this afternoon - can it get any better than this?

It was a year ago today that we found out about a little boy soon on his way to our family. I've been thinking a lot today about the details of that late August evening. I remember so clearly sitting on the couch reading Tracey's email out loud to Marc. My voice was shaking from trying to keep the lump in my throat from surfacing. We were excited. We were nervous. We wanted so badly to believe that everything was finally going to work out, but it was incredibly difficult to keep the fears at bay.

Fortunately everything worked out more perfectly than we ever could have imagined. Today I snuggled my 8-month old Benjamin a little extra, thinking back to a year ago when he was already well on his way to becoming a part of us. And as we think back to those fortunate moments from a year ago, we're also looking ahead to this weekend when we'll be able to take him to the temple. 

I still can't believe how or why we've been so blessed.
