Please know that I DO NOT like to travel. I mean, I really don't so when God put this in my heart, I was like you want me to go where....and the flight is how long? And the conditions are what...I can't drink the water, huh? I have to get how many shots before I travel??? Okay, God this is sooo out of my comfort zone but the crazy thing is that I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be when I think about the children there and my daughter that will be there. I can't wait for that Gotcha Day!
To help you understand the excitement and emotion involved with Gotcha Day, I thought I'd share some past Ethiopian 'Gotcha Day' videos. There are videos that show older children as well being brought into their forever families. Turn up your volume as they all share great music to accompany the video and photos.....and just think, our family will one day be able to share the love of our daughter's Gotcha Day with you. Until then, take a peek into the lives of some of these families:
Here's one video but the family does not have it posted on YouTube. You can click here to go to their website and view it under the title "Our First Date": http://www.gracieib.blogspot.com/
....okay, i know. I owe you a box of Kleenex. (smile)
