I am a few days late on this, but wanted to commemorate the day anyways. We have now been a family of three for one month. It is hard to believe. It still doesn't feel entirely real to me. I have this feeling that at any point I am going to be told "gig's up, but glad you enjoyed yourself." That probably sounds strange to a lot of people, but when you wait for a child as long as John and I did, it is a pretty common feeling. To celebrate, I thought I would finally post our airport pictures. One month ago (plus a few days), we stepped off the plane and began our lives together. We are beyond blessed to have JoonSeo as our son.
I do have a follow up to my last post on the sleep issues, which was really about grieving not sleep. The sleep struggles were really a symptom of the problem and not the underlying issue. I was actually very discouraged afterward and just had to take a break from blogging and being on the computer, not so much because of the responses I received here, but from some I received in other places where I had posted about our struggles. Then I kept wanting to post a follow up, but didn't want to post a response in haste before getting some perspective on everything. That said, things have improved quite a bit as Joshua has become a little more comfortable with us.
