One Year Ago Today...

It was one year ago today that we found out we were officially about to become a family.

The call came as were were walking out the door to drive to the airport. We were going to be a family of five! Scary and amazing news all at the same time. I remember Ken and I making the calls that morning, cramped in my Mini, to let everyone know that we had been matched with triplets! Yes, three babies!!! Our friends and family were overjoyed (and to be honest a little stunned!)

This is one of the first photos we ever saw of our kiddos...

And now exactly one year later -- here we are -- loving every minute of it (well, almost every minute!)

As my friend Kelly recently said on her blog about getting their referral call one year ago -- Happy Referralversary!


  1. Amazing. Then and now. Can you believe it's been a year? I can only imagine how it has flown by for you in a flurry of diapers and giggles.

    1. I know. I really can't believe it's already been a year. Time flies when your're having fun and changing diapers :)

  2. Yes, happy referralversary! Wow, one year - isn't it amazing to think about all that has happened since then?! I love seeing them as little tiny babies... look at those outfits! The two-plaid combo is really something else. :)

  3. Just found your blog today and I'm loving it! Could you email me? We might be adopting triplets internationally ourselves and I'd loved to ask you some questions. vthomas(@)me.com Congratulations on your beautiful three!
