OUR ADOPTION JOURNEY

Rod put together this video highlighting our trip....it was hard to just do highlights. He did a great job and it will be a nice keepsake for the girls. It's hard to believe that we are home and have started our life together as a family of 8. We are so blessed and I hope you enjoy the video.....I did!!!

    Watching your video made me tear up and want to go pick Mikiyas out of his crib and hold him ... I'll control myself and let him sleep [he really needs it]. Thanks for sharing!

    Your video was beautiful. But, your girls are even more beautiful. I loved seeing the picture at the end with all the kids on the couch. That is by far my favorite Steven Curtis Chapman song :) Thanks for your comments on our blog. Blessings, Amy
