I don’t know what I was doing four year ago today… the day you were born. I don’t know if there’s a woman… a family… on the other side of the world mourning you today. There’s a lot I don’t know.   As I looked through pictures to share, I cried.  I’ve missed a lot […]

We’re happy to announce that our whole little family is finally on the same continent!  Today was affectionately referred to as Gotcha Day.  The day we were united with our son forever– and we never have to let him go!  It was also the first time our kids met.  Both were incredible, and it was […]
