Happy Gotcha Day...1 YEAR ALREADY!

September 5th is an extra special day to celebrate in our family. Today is our precious "S's" birthday AND our sweet Solomon's Gotcha Day!

Honestly...how can it already be 1 year since our precious Solomon was placed in our arms.  I will NEVER forget the HUGE smile he had as he came barreling into the conference room...he was dragging the nanny as fast as he could. He ran straight up to us...huge smiles...then the reality of what was about to happen started to sink in and the smile turned in to..."I don't think so!"

We often talk about the incredible journey to him...how so many of YOU helped bring him home...how the Lord radically changed our lives in ways we never knew possible...

Our darling Solomon...you have no idea the depth of our love for you. We are so blessed by you...so thankful you are ours forever.  You are a living example that our God is a miracle performing, mountain moving God.  It has been absolutely beautiful watching you discover the love of a family. You have taught us to never take anything for granted. You have shown incredible bravery and strength as you left everything you've ever known. You are attaching and bonding so deeply...truly a precious gift from the Lord! We love you baby boy...Happy 1 year home!!!
