TWO years ago ...

2 years ago @ Denver...
We made 1 phone call, Maximillion was just born a day before we call.

When we saw him, it was LOVE at first sight.
 After patiently waiting for 8 weeks, we drove 8 hours to Kansas for him. 
We don't want him to be traumatized by flying at 8 weeks old ...
When I held him in my arm, I can feel the connection immediately and knew we will be connected this way for the rest of our life. 
TOto was covered in a blankie and slept in my arm all the way home. 
We only have to stop once for him to do his business. 
He was only 4lbs then ...
Finally when he is home, he fit just right in ...
And I know then TOto is the missing piece in our life.

We are finally a family unit.

Happy 2nd Birthday


  1. Happy Belated Birthday Toto!
    I thought I had a long drive (2hrs) when I went to get Kip. Now I see that's nothing compared to your eight hour drive.

    4lbs! That's almost half of what Kip weighed when I brought him home. But then again, I got him when he was 4 months old so I guess that would make sense.

  2. @Kim, Yah we drove through the night. Stop at a very isolated motel. And drove right back home, it is such a adventure.
