I met a woman in the park shortly after we adopted Camille. We talked for a bit. She had older boys and a little girl from China. She was a great encouragement, sharing honestly of the struggles of adoption... many of which we were also going through. As we said goodbye she told me the kids would grow up all too fast. She looked at Camille, still so young, and then glanced over to her own boys...moving too fast toward adulthood; and said to me, "they'll grow up too fast... don't blink or you'll miss it" I thought for a while, watching them walk away... and as we waved goodbye she yelled again... "Don't Blink"
