And baby made three!

Three years ago today on February 7th, 2006 you were placed in my arms. Words cannot even describe that day. I remember later my mom asked me if I cried and I told her that the energy in the room was so full of excitement that if I remember correctly not one of us cried. We were all so happy for each other and watching families that we had grown close to realize their dreams was so powerful. We will be bonded with them for life.
I remember when they brought all the babies in the room, everyone was trying to find their daughter ( they had all changed quite a bit from their referral pictures). The Chief spotted Alexa immediately and we literally could not take our eyes off of her. We had to sit there for a bit while our guide spoke and I remember I just kept saying over and over in my mind, "Just give me my child!" I had waited so long and we had been through so much that to sit there and wait was agonizing, but exciting because I knew the moment was happening. Life changing...that's all I can say!

Isn't it funny how that day flew by, and yet it felt like everything happened in slow motion?!?
