i remember {2 years ago}…

i remember being at the hospital for ye ye’s surgery and getting a phone call from the adoption agency.

i remember
being surprised to learn that our wait to you was finally coming to a close… and a wee bit shocked that you were a boy!

i remember
that immediately my mother-in-love fetched her “nai nai” key ring out of her purse… and that the nurses were kind enough to let us see our baby (via email) for the first time.

i remember
the excitement of sharing your “paper ultrasound” with those who love us… and you, the most.

i remember
flying ½ way (back) around the world… and daddy’s anxiety and anticipation.

i remember
those last moments of “just us two” and how incredibly calm and ready i felt.

i remember that look – blank, confused, and maybe a bit scared. i remember my “moment” as i was overcome with gratitude as my arms, my heart no longer felt the ache of wanting desperately to hold you.

i remember the instant you entered into my life was one of pure elation, totally and completely euphoric… a dream that literally came true.

i remember cheerios… and those first moments of eye contact.

i remember celebrating our 1st anniversary together… and how very much we love you.

i remember celebrating how much you’d grown and changed.

i remember
every day with you is a gift and that my arms, my heart no longer ache because of your generous gifts of love and affection.

i remember
that today, two years after we first met you, i am still totally smitten with you.

i remember
that you have changed my life, my world, for the better.

please always remember we love you, sterling (my baby boy).
