Can you believe it's only been three years since we completed our family by flying to China to bring Lucy home? They were so teeny tiny!
We ended our weekend of celebrating Family Day by trying a new place in Wicker Park called Bee and Tea. If you average out the ages of our children with Len's and my ages we might be in the right demographic to haunt Wicker Park locales...but we should dye our hair some color not found in nature. We are just not hipster enough...Len would need a much thicker beard and some plaid shirts, not to mention our complete lack of tattoos and suitably placed body piercings.
Kate tried her best and I think she upped our cool quotient by a few points with her hipster new haircut and sunglasses. The rhinestone-studded leopard tee helped as well.
6 years since that first post and it seemed an eternity as we waited for our adoptions (Yes, adoptions, plural. Remember Nepal??) to be complete. Little did we know that in 3 years from that first post, I would give birth to an amazingly bright, funny little girl and then adopt a little spitfire, athletic clown to join her. Less than a year after our adoption we would be rocked again, with news of my cancer diagnosis and the battle that followed.
Thank you all for supporting us and caring about our journey by reading my words. It's a rare occasion when I am completely verklempt but thinking back on the road that our lives have taken in just 6 years and the friends we've made is...indescribable.
