Happy 2nd Family Day!

2 years ago around 8:30am, my husband walked into my office with a half-dozen pink roses and said, “Let’s go get our daughter!” After my heart started beating again, I said, “Are you serious?!?” He shook his head and I just started bawling (kind of like I am know as I’m typing this).  Once I regained my composure, I asked him again, “We’ve got a daughter?” We had been waiting 8 long weeks for that phone call! I think I packed up my belongings at work in a minute flat and we headed out the door! I picked up the phone to call my parents and could barely get through telling them the good news! All of the pain and heartache was pushed away in that moment. The second she was placed in our arms, we realized that she was everything that we had been waiting for!

Wow has time flown the last 2 years! We cannot wait to celebrate Family Day when Hubs returns home from camp! Of course there will be pictures to come!

I love hearing from you!

  1. Happy Gotcha Day! We love celebrating the day our son came home – it was 3 days before Christmas so we always have a good time!

  2. Congratulations! We celebrate this in our house as well. But we call it our “Gotcha Day”. Love it!
