Summing up my week in three words was quite easy this week! I am happy to say that had my checkup on Monday and as you know, from my previous post, the doctor said on the spot everything looked good, but I got my little report on Saturday with official test results.....Nothing but a big sigh of relief.....8 Years Cancer Free.....WhoooHooo!


Sarah


This part is not so easy......Sarah is growing up right before our very eyes.....it is going way too fast!

It is funny that in one breath, we can look at Sarah and say, where has the time gone, it seems like yesterday she was a day old and we were holding her for the very first time.......now she is 19 months old. In the very next breath, we say what is taking so long in China, we have been officially waiting 25 months........it seems like we have been waiting forever! I guess the moral of the story is that time only moves quickly when you don't want it too!

Over the past week or two we have watched Sarah become so independent, she is mastering stairs, speaking and saying words we have never heard before, feeding herself, and showing interest in the potty.........she is quickly outgrowing her baby status. She wants to do everything by herself without the help of Mommy and Daddy.

As wonderful as it is to see your child grow and reach these milestones, it is a sad reality......our baby is becoming a big girl.

Whooo hooo! That is awesome news!

Kamree turns 2 in August. We no longer have a baby anymore either! It makes me so sad! Where do the months (or years) go?! I guess time flies when you are having so much fun!

Wonderful news and hoping that you are celebrating!

The wait is so difficult. Time flies in terms of your other kids growing up, but then the waiting drags you down! I know- I remember exactly how you feel. We waited 26 months past LID for our second. Hope that the process starts getting faster.

8 years cancer-free . . . that is awesome!! Congratulations!!!! :)

I'm sorry your China adoption is taking so long! Is that a normal timeframe for that country or is there some strange hold-up?

Eight years! Great news! My mom is a cancer survivor, and our next-door neighbor is fighting the battle at the moment. I hope to hear this news from her in eight years, too! Congratulations!

Oh, and our little Tongginator is four now. It's amazing how fast those years just slip away...
