Two Year Ago...

We entered this room not really knowing what to except. All we knew was that our hopes, dreams and prayers were being answered.

The families were the first to arrive and then the nannies arrived with the babies. Be still my heart... our sweet girl was spotted across the room. She was so beautiful!

Lucky for us the babies were united with their forever families in alphabetical order so we were first.

As soon as Megan was placed in my arms she smiled at me! My heart just melted.

After a bath and a full tummy we spent the evening getting to know each other.

I have had some the best moments of my life in the last two years. I feel truly blessed and am cherishing every moment of being Megan's Mama.


  1. what sweet pictures and memories... I think we in the "work" of raising our children, we can forget that first beautiful moment of having them!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Tomorrow is Joshua's birthday and the first day we met him. Congratulations on your gotcha day...I know how special that moment was!

  3. That is so incredibly sweet!!! What a true blessing she is!!!

  4. What a blessing!

  5. My eyes welled with tears as I read this and saw the pictures. Happy tears, of course! I am awed at a God who puts families together from across the world. He knew Megan would be a perfect fit for your family. What a blessing she is!

    What precious memories!

  7. What great photos of all of you! I am so happy that she has you both to love her, and raise her. God bless you all.

  8. You are all blessing each other. I think Megan was meant for you and you were meant to be her parents.
    God doesn't make mistakes!

  9. I am a new reader and I am so crying after looking at those photo. May God bless bless bless your beautiful family.

  10. My husband and I are adopting domestically. Your story is very encouraging for me as I'm waiting.

  11. I'm so glad that God brought your family together in such a special way. ;)

  12. How precious! I'm sure she has been such a blessing. God planned those very moments before time began.


  13. That is just precious! We have so much in common, our daughters are the same age, and we were called up first also! I didn't realize it was due to alphabetical order, but that makes sense! While all the other babies cried, ours was sleeping, and when she awoke, she didn't cry at all. She was just curious, and reached out to touch my face, then started bouncing on my knee...such precious memories. You are one blessed Mama!

  14. Look how tiny she was!!! OH MY!! I know when we got Elizabeth, I thought "Oh my! She's big already! She has hair!!!" and I completely never noticed how small she was. Now I look back at pictures and am shocked that she was a BABY!!!!

    Wasn't "Gotcha" Day the BEST day of your life!!
