An Adoption Story...

I love to hear how other families come together through the miracle of adoption.  I've been following Ashley's blog for a few years now and most recently she has shared her journey to adopting her daughter from China.  Today's post is about when she finally meets her for the first time.  If you're anything like me, you'll get chills and need a box of tissues handy.  To read Ashley's post, click here

And because Ashley's post got me feeling all reminiscent, here are pictures of us meeting and holding our babies for the first time.  


I think we were in shock holding our E...I couldn't stop staring at him.   He is eight days old in this picture. 


We were definitely more experienced (and more relaxed) with our Little Miss.  She is a day old in this picture and she already had a great set of lungs.

An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance.  The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break.

I truly believe it takes very special people to become adoptive parents.. I am not sure I could have had such an open heart to do so, but admire you for your choices. I am new to your blog, but coming back you can be sure.. J
