A Little Late in Sharing....

I went back to my parent's house last week and was going through my mom's digital camera and found this picture. I just had to share it! This was right after we walked through the doors of Immigration at Ft. Lauderdale's International Airport, exhausted, but as happy as we will ever be. All those months of worrying if he would ever come home vanished just like that. We knew upon touching American soil that this little boy we had dreamed of for so long was finally ours and ready to join his family that had waited and prayed for him.

That's my mom all the way to the left, and her two closest friends, Graciela and Amada and well, you know the three of us. My dad took the picture.
