A look back
It started with an unassuming comment.
The older kids had been admiring the bald head of a 5 month old.
"You were bald too when you were that age." I told them.
Almost immediately, Suhn asked if she was bald when she was a baby. Then she wanted to see her baby pictures.
For many adopted children, this can be a hard question. Baby pictures can be few or almost non-existent. But thanks to the amazing women at Angel House who loved on Suhn and took many, many pictures until we could bring her home, we have close to 100 pictures of Suhn as a baby.
So we sat, the two of us, and looked at the pictures one by one, exclaiming over how cute she was when she was little. She smiled and giggled and asked where we were. So we talked about adoption and how babies find their families in different ways.
It was one of many moments to come. Processing her journey together. Looking back at where she had been and giving thanks for where she is now. In this moment. Home.
