One Year Ago

One year ago today we got the call that changed our lives. Today is the anniversary of our match for Samuel. We were starting to get really anxious and beginning to wonder if we would ever get a match. God knew exactly what he was doing. Samuel was meant for us from the beginning. Its been quite a year and I wouldn't change a thing. He is truly a gift from God. I continue to pray that R has found peace with her decision.

August is a very busy month for us. Davis turns 6 on the 7th and Samuel turns 1 on the 24th. Two parties to plan. And getting ready for kindergarten. Fun times ahead!

It is such an important anniversary! "The Call" is something so magical and joyful...only other adoptive parents can truly understand the emotions involved. Recently J and I talked about Evie's "Call" anniversary as well and reminisced about how cool it was.

Yay! Happy anniversary! It must be amazing to think of where you were a year ago, wondering what the future would hold. Samuel's birthday is the same as mine! Watch out for virgos! ;-)
