Orphaned no more!

How can it possibly be...4 years ago today, our precious Cana girl was placed in our arms forever. I will NEVER forget the moment she was placed in my arms...it just about leveled me! We had such a fight to get her home and the emotions overwhelmed me as I held our sweet girl that almost didn't get to come home.  She came to us screaming hysterically (she had been crying for at least 30 mins. before we got there)...she was so stiff but then as we whispered to her, her body relaxed, she melted into me, and calmed down...all within the first minute.  Our Lord had prepared her for her mama and baba...it was so beautiful.

My sweet love, God has some incredible plans for your precious life. We had to fight like crazy to get you home and you've had to fight like crazy through your SPD. You are resilient precious one...you are strong...your joy spills overflowing...your love is fierce...your compassion is beautiful....we love you so much and praise the Lord for the intense trial to bring you home.  Happy 4 years of being home forever!!

That is about the sweetest video ever and the precious laugh at the end is beautiful! I loved watching this and it brought tears to my eyes to think what a perfect match God had planned from the beginning!
