It Took Me 2 Weeks but...

I finally got the Gotcha Day video made. Hope you like it. I plan to make a few more videos from our time in China later this week.

"Not flesh of my flesh,
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart
but in it."

Soooooo sweet! So amazing! Thanks for sharing the love with us! :) Can't wait to see how she grows and blossoms into your family. It's obvious that she already understands how you love her and her trust in you was evident Sunday evening. Blessings!

Very sweet video! I know many will say that Ruthie is (& will be) so blessed by you being her parents. And while I agree with that, I believe that you and Trent and your family will be even more blessed by Ruthie. She will change your lives, your scope of influence and much, much more. Enjoy the ride! We're so excited for you! -shannon d.

This was just amazing, she is so beautiful, and will love it in years to come to see herself during the first moments of her life with you.
Of course I cried, so many memories of the first days with our own adopted girls. Enjoy each moment...
