The time of our lives

It's been one year since Jake entered our lives, one year since our sweet boy was united with us.

That first day was a little rough. Jake obviously was upset, which was totally understandable. He's made such tremendous progress in a year. We truly don't remember what life was like without him. Our big plans for a one-year celebration, though, didn't materialize like we wanted. The weather was kind of yucky, overcast and drizzly all day, and Jake was suffering from a stomach virus. But, just being together was celebration enough.

By the way, the photo of the hotel room door in our previous post was taken just after the two orphanage directors, the nanny and our guide knocked on the door with Jake.

Here are a couple of then and now photos.
