Gotcha Day

Today we're also remembering...but this time we're remembering the court room, the judge, the sweet baby boy in our arms.

We're remembering 11 a.m. - our court appointment.

We're remembering the tears that flowed... tears of happiness.

We're remembering our family and friends who came to share in this special day.

We're remembering our long journey to parenthood and the sweet sweet joy of celebrating the official adoption of our son.

We have two children. We love them equally. It makes no difference that one shares our DNA.

They both call us mommy and daddy. They both run to our arms for comfort. They both fill our hearts with so much joy. They are both beautifully and wonderfully made.

Samuel has been running around all day yelling, "Gotcha Day. I got you!" He knows we're having a little dinner party when he wakes up from his nap. He's excited he gets to eat cake :) He doesn't understand adoption but we're talking about it and teaching him the words. He knows we're celebrating him today and he feels special.

Gotcha Day is a family celebration. It's a chapter that we are so very thankful is part of our story.
