Happy Gotcha Day Carson!!!

One year ago today this precious baby boy became forever ours...



I had no idea we could fall so deeply in love with you that our hearts would physically ache thinking of how close we came to missing this.

Carson, not a day goes by that I do not marvel at the fact that God allowed you to be our son. From the second you came into our family it felt as if it had always been. The bond you and Kaden share never stops amazing me, but better yet- the bond you have with all of us does as well. Every single morning, without fail, you greet me with your beautiful smile. It is, hands down, the best part of my day. Thank you, my precious son, for being exactly who you are. Thank you for handing out your sweet hugs so freely. Thank you for loving each and every one of us with complete abandonment- and for allowing us to love you the same. You are such a good, good boy and your presence in our lives has brought us more happiness than we could ever ask for. I love you Carson Christopher more than you will probably ever be able to understand...

Thank you Lord for this child~ and for giving us more than we knew to ask for.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:20

Amy, Just happened on you blog. we have started the process on our second ET adoption. We have 4 kids (18, 16, 12 and 3-adopted 2009 from ET). Wondering if I am being called to adopt from the US, though. I looked for your email but I could not find it. Would you mind telling me who you used and your experience? My email is j.jennifermorgan at comcast.net
