I took a walk backwards as we are coming up on the 5 year anniversary of the boys' homecoming. I was reading back over the blog and looking through pictures. Five years ago today, Sydney, Mike and I were desperately trying to grab onto patience as we waited through airline mechanical problems on our way to Manila.
I'd encourage anyone who is adopting to try blogging, write a journal, record it however you can. The memories are priceless and will mean something to you, your child and all those people who are supporting you.
I may not possess any more patience today than I did five years ago but we do have two amazing sons to show from the journey and a boatload of memories.
