392 Days

392 DAYS

We missed the first 392 days of Paxton's life.

We missed 392 days of holding Paxton.

We missed 392 days of laughing with Paxton.

We missed 392 days of Paxton's smile.

We missed 392 days of watching Paxton grow.

We missed 392 days of hugging Paxton.

We missed 392 days of giving Paxton kisses.

We missed 392 days.




392 DAYS

We have enjoyed 392 days of Paxton's life.

We have held Paxton for 392 days.

We have laughed with Paxton for 392 days.

We have enjoyed Paxton's smile for 392 days.

We have watched Paxton grow for 392 days.

We have hugged Paxton for 392 days.

We have kissed Paxton for 392 days.

We have ENJOYED 392 days!




August 7, 2016 is a special day because today Paxton has been with us the same number of days as he was without us and we were without him!  We missed the first 392 days of Paxton's live, but we have loved each and every day of the last 392 days with him!  

As of tomorrow, Paxton will have been with us for more days than without.  
393...394...395...396...fovever!

Today is also special because two years ago today, we said "YES" to adoption and we submitted our application to our agency, Lifeline Children's Services!  We did not know or understand the joy that that decision would bring us.  We knew we were being obedient to God and we were so excited about our future, but we could not have imagined the joy we have experienced because of the little boy that God gave us!  I am so thankful that we said "YES"!

This is a BIG milestone! Love that you marked it. His having been with you longer than he was without you. Makes me get watery. Love your heart. Love your heart for him and for adoption! Great post!
