Saturday marked 2 months since we received Jae's referral. If the wait time does not decrease, that means 2 months down and 6 to go. Yuck. But still positive. Still moving forward. Still excited to have a happy, healthy son. Still very excited to have a giant Noah's Ark to play with.
Lately I have thoughts about how far we go to keep the Korean language in Jae's life. If Jae doesn't come home until May (which would be 8 months after his referral), he will have absorbed quite a bit of his native language, even at that young age. Which we think is great! I would love for Jae to continue to learn the Korean language. But how much do we push? Do we find a Korean language school? Can his parents also join in the class? Can our buddy, Brian, teach us what he learned from Rosetta Stone?
I really want to bring the Korean culture into the Herzog house. But big picture, Jae just needs to be a kid. And I suppose it is like any parent's dream for their kiddo - -a baseball player, a rocket scientist, an actuary...whatever. But since the Korean language is already a part of him, is it a good idea to continue to push him in that direction?
Not necessarily looking for an answer. Just sharing my thoughts.
