February 3

February 3, 2010
2 years ago i saw this face for the first time
and my heart finally felt complete

i remember opening up the email and then the picture file 
and looking into these dark brown gorgeous eyes for the first time
and thinking i might explode with all of the years of pinned up emotions that lead me on this journey

interestingly enough the first 2 pictures i opened were actually of her special need
one of her hands
and one of her feet
and without ever seeing her face i knew those were the hands and feet of my daughter
i knew with certainty

so, when i actually opened up this third picture and saw the 
thick hair
round face
and pink ruffle dress
i knew God was trying to stick a burning bush right in front of my computer screen
this was it
this was my child

and now i will spend my life in overwhelming gratitude that He brought us together
in a way only He could do
Oh, What a Mighty God we Serve!!

There are no words to describe that moment, the 1st time one sees a picture of their child! Only another adoptive parent would understand that. The only thing more powerful emotionally is the moment he/she is walked into the room to meet you.

Happy referralversary!
