GOTCHA!

It's been a year. A whole year. I once again tried to post the video of Nate and I first meeting, but for whatever reason I have never been able to get it to convert, so instead I decided to show my sweet adoption followers who this little man is now.

Just think, a year ago he had lived all his days in an orphanage and had just been handed over to this woman that he didn't know. He was scared and confused and...it was just so hard. But now a year has come and gone and he looks at me now and I am mama...and I love that.

A year ago today...

...after a 15+ hour flight, we landed in Ethiopia, where we were put up by the airlines in a hotel. It was maybe not the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in, but it was the last night before we (Rachel and I) saw my son and I was so excited that I just didn't mind all that much.

First Anniversaries

We are hitting those days, the first anniversaries...

A year ago today I boarded a plane, heading for Rwanda, heading for my son, having no idea what was before me, excited, scared, in disbelief and shock! It was finally happening, I was finally on my way...
