18 months

On Thursday of this past week, our sweet son turned 18 months old.  Its hard to believe we first saw him at barely the age of 6 months old.  I am so ready to get our little one (not so little) in my arms.  We have had so many ups and downs lately with the process as far as the new laws in Korea changing and what that looks like for each family.  A couple weeks ago we received some news that was heartbreaking (which I will blog soon to keep for Easton's adoption story).  I wasn't sure when I would see his little face or even if we would get to see it.  I am praying so hard to meet him soon.  Things seem to have calmed down a bit, but with this being a new law, I am not sure how it will go.  There haven't been any families to travel this year, but we are hopeful for a group of families to go in April.  Sadly, that is not us. 
Easton, I know from the update we received that you are getting so big and strong.  I must tell do look a bit like an old man with your hair.  We can work on that, right?!   You say 4 or 5 words clearly, you have a mouthful of teeth, and you still don't walk.  We know you like to be in charge, which is a problem because your sister and I both like to be in charge. You seem to be very attached to your foster family, and it already makes my heart sad for the day when we say goodbye to them.  Your heart will be so sad as will theirs.
We can't wait for you to be home for us to learn your personality and have you here, present in this family.  I don't know what the future holds as far as the new laws, but we are coming sweet boy.  I don't know when, but we are coming.  We love you all the way on the other side of this huge world.  Your name is a daily topic in our family, and you are a member of this family.  We just need you HERE with US!  We love you Easton Myers.  I wish we could say that we will be to Korea in X days, but that isn't the case yet.  We don't know.  We are literally waiting daily for any and all news.  Happy 18 months kiddo.  It's another month down, so another month closer to you!!
