Adoption Day

Nine years ago today, on the other side of the world this happened. 



And today still I pinch myself that I get to be her mama.

And that we're a family.

Tonight at prayer time Anna said, "Thank you God for making us a family."

Oh how I love that.

  1. Tara, this video touched my heart...and I was dying watching you unable to find Anna. It was just like when I was ready to deliver Mary Catherine...after 11 years of infertility and losses we were finally going to meet our baby (we didn't know if she was a boy or girl). As I was being prepped for surgery (c-section), my OB nurse walked in and said, "I'm so sorry, we've got 2 emergency c-sections that just came in. We need to push your delivery back a couple of hours." I swear it seemed like a couple of days! Anyway, your family is so beautiful and Anna is growing up to be such a beautiful young lady!

    Congrats on your "Gotcha Day" anniversary!!!
