…that it was two years ago today that it was snowing outside. We had our home decorated for Christmas. Quint had just turned two years old and was napping. And I sat here – in this exact spot…nervous, anxious, excited. After being logged in the system to adopt from China for 3 years, 8 months, and 3 days…we were down to minutes until we would finally see her face, find out who she was, where she was, and when we could go get her. It was surreal in every way.
You can re-live those anxious and very happy posts
and – save the best for last
(this last link includes a video that shares our first moments seeing Keira’s face for the first time and I do have to warn you – it apparently causes tears. It did for me, I just watched it again!)
She was absolutely spectacular…and worth every bit of those 3 years, 8 months, and 3 days.
Worth that and so much more. Worth a lifetime of waiting if that’s what it would have taken.
And I can tell you firsthand, she is even more spectacular today.
