What a day!

Well, I couldn't let today go by without a post. Today marks one year, that's right, one year that Gabriel was placed in our arms FOREVER. What an amazing year it has been! I seriously cannot believe it has been a year. So much has happened, yet it seems like just yesterday we were waiting to hear from PGN, waiting to hear about Pink, waiting for his birth certificate. And yet, here we are, all under one roof and a baby boy in his room sleeping the night away.

This story could have ended very differently, but thankfully did not. What a journey it was to bring Gabriel home, but we would do again in a heartbeat. That child is beyond a blessing to us and we give thanks to God every day for him, for the sacrifice his birthmother made and for allowing our journey to end happily.

That picture above was taken during Entrega Final which translates to final handoff. In case you are wondering what happy looks like, you can see for yourself.

Seventeen months from beginning to end only to prove that slow and steady won this race.
