You did such a great job! That will be a great keepsake for M to look back at. He has changed so much. Happy Early Gotcha Day!

Oh, how beautiful!! Happy Gotcha day, Michael! He has grown sooo much in a year, hasnt he? Congrats to all of you...many many more to come. (Any great gotcha day traditions you are establishing?)

Nice work, Gen! You have me sobbing like a baby! I remember so vividly what it was like to walk into Tokmok and meet Anara. I can't imagine what it must have been like for you, to meet and hold your very first child. I know how hard you prayed for him, and I am so happy that you were blessed with him and with Phoebe. Congratualtions on 1 yr of Mommyhood!! Blessings,
Hilary

Oh what a beautiful Montage...I love both songs, but am wondering what that second song is...if you don't mind dropping me an email about it...:) Hopefully you got my return email about the CWA picnic...if not let me know and I will resend :) Have a GREAT day and kiss Michael (and Phoebe for me!)

The tears are flowing! That was so beautiful, so moving! If I am bawling now, how ever will I be able to hold it together when we head over there for our baby?
Congratulations! What a wonderful way to chronicle this forever. The music is beautiful, and the pictures are priceless.
God bless you guys. Let us know if you'd like to meet some time. We'd love to!! Now that we're done with all the document gathering, I'm going crazy here! :)

It was just the emotional fix I needed to "get me through" this never-ending wait. You did SUCH a beautiful job, a tribute to the love you have for this sweet little man. I am so glad you shared it -- even though it's hard to cry this early in the day! *smile*

I am new to your blog, we're just starting our IA journey and have chosen Kyrgyzstan. Thank you so much for that priceless glimpse into your son's life. It was beautiful and now I'm crying!
