Today 3 years ago I held you for the first time & it is a moment I will cherish forever. My precious baby girl you change our lives & we could not thank God enough for the blessings he has given us.
Before I Knew Your Name
Author: Bob Carlisle (Song Lyrics)
Before I saw your chin and your nose,
Before I counted your fingers and toes,
I asked heaven for someone as wonderful as you,
And every prayer and wish came true.
I dreamed of you...Before I knew your name.

We had no idea what was in store when God lead us down the road to adopt & WOW what an amazing path that the Lord has opened our eyes & hearts to a whole new world. This day is a day we will celebrate a new beginning of life for our family. Many families that have adopted celebrate their child's "Gotcha Day" also known as Family Day. For us it is a day to not only express how blessed we are to be mommy and daddy but to also celebrate the union of our family through adoption.

Chinese folklore says there are invisible red threads that connect a newborn child's spirit to all who will be important in her life. The threads may stretch and might even tangle, but they will never break. As the child grows, the threads will shorten, drawing closer to those people who are destined to be together!!!!!

We will be celebrating this memorable day with our dear friends in Alabama. She has a cake ready for when we get there so I will post pictures of our "Forever Family Day" once we return from spring break.

Our thoughts are with all the other families that shared this memorable day with us 3 years ago. We were all patiently waiting in this tiny filled room with so many emotions waiting to see & hold our precious baby girls for the very first time. We love you all, you are our extended family forever!!!!
