2 years ago today

June 5th, 2009

dsc02654Two years ago today, we were on a jet plane making our way back home from our Guatemalan adventures. I’m never sure what day we should call our official Family Day. April 12th is the day we picked Sabrina up and I moved to Antigua with her. She never left our custody again after that day. Or June 1st which is the day she became our daughter legally. Or June 5th the day she stepped onto US soil, became a citizen, and truly came home. In my head, I mark each anniversary. Externally, we don’t do anything to mark the occasion other than tell Sabrina the story of what happened that day and why it is significant.

    I really need to set aside some time and go into your archives to read about your early days with Sabrina. I’m so interested. When I found you, you were just pregnant with Tessa so I missed all of Sabrina’s baby-hood. I think I’ll block some time on my calendar.

    Job? What job? 😉


    Happy family day!

    Happy 2 years home!! There are so many days to celebrate, and it is hard to choose!! I think you have the right idea

    I completely understand you not knowing what day was most important. I have the same trouble. First day we met, first visit, court day, officially her mom day, leaving the orphanage day, coming home day, they are all important. I chose the day she came to the apartment to live with me. That’s when we became a family. Congrats on your 2 year anniversary! It goes fast.
