Happy 1 Year Gotcha Day Will!!!

One year ago today we met a very frightened and overwhelmed 4yo in a freezing Civil Affairs office in Nanjing China. It's hard to believe that's the same child we love today...my how we have all grown! I made this video shortly after arriving home...it still brings tears to my eyes and butterflies to my stomache....I hope you take the time to watch it!

As our family celebrates, my heart aches for those that still wait, for the Sammy's and their zanny personality that sit undiscovered, unloved. CONSIDER PUTTING ALL RESERVATIONS ASIDE, ALL THOUGHTS OF WHAT YOU HAVE PLANNED FOR YOUR LIFE, AND CONSIDER PRAYING....JUST PRAYING IF GOD HAS A CHILD OUT THERE THAT NEEDS YOU, THAT IS YOUR! CHILD. TAKE ONE MONTH...THAT'S ALL...ASK... AND BE OPEN TO WHATEVER GOD ANSWERS. Once adoption gets in your heart, you are never the same!!



  1. What a precious boy! Congratulations to you and to him. :) Mary

  2. So good to see that things are going well!

    Hard to believe it has been a year for you all, and 8 months for us.

    We have turned some good corners, sounds like ya'll have too (:



  3. Love your video, Myra. Still can't believe it's been a year... and yet, as always, feels like our kids have always been with us... hope all is well!!

  4. I just watched your video and got chills! How precious!!! It is hard to believe a year has gone by!!! You guys have a wonderful family!!!
