Happy Gotcha Day!!!

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven....a time to embrace....a time to get....a time to keep....a time to love. He hath made everything beautiful in his time." Ecclesiastes 3. (These are the Bible verses I opened to in our hotel room in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on the morning of our Gotcha Day one year ago.)

One year ago today, we were reunited with Jalen and Jordan for good! We first met them at the beginning of August, 2011, but had to wait 3 more months before we were finally able to bring them home. On November 13, 2011, we walked outside the gates of Hannah's Hope, our adoption agency's transition home, with our boys in our arms. They were our sons! We were now a family of eight! The day that we had waited so long for had finally arrived! And our world, hearts, and lives just haven't been the same since.

We love you SOOO much, Jalen and Jordan, and are so thankful that God brought you into our lives. You have brought us so much joy, and we can't even imagine our lives without you. XOXOXOXOXOXO
