One year ago today...

...we received our referral for Grace!! What a year it has been. We have been blessed with the most beautiful and amazing little miracle that anyone could hope and dream for!!!!! Who would have thought that this little baby girl, born half way around the world, would capture our hearts the way she has. What an honor it is to be chosen to be her parents!

So, to commemorate our referral, we finally put together our "Journey to Grace".

I am crying like a baby!!! That was so beautiful!! I watched it and then called my husband inside and had him watch it with me, again. We both had tears in our eyes....well he had tears in his eyes, I was crying like a baby.

Now you have me thinking there is still hope for a referral and travel before courts (probably not though.) Maybe if a referral comes Monday or Tuesday we could make it under the wire!!

Thank you for sharing that wonderful journey with all of us.

OK, I'm loving your blog! I'm bawling watching your video of your journey to Grace! It gives me such hope for this journey we're just starting!

May I ask, where did you get that adorable little dolly she was holding? I love it! PS, where in the PNW do you live?
