Below you will find a link to our Meeting Day video. You are invited to spend 13 minutes of your time watching a particularly eventful day in our family. But first, we have a few things to share.
It was an extraordinary day.
It was an overwhelming day.
It was a beautiful day.
It was an exhausting day.
It was a really, really hot day.
Most importantly though, it was just one day. Adoption is about a whole lot more than this one extraordinary, overwhelming, beautiful, exhausting and hot day. We’ve had approximately 115 days since then that have looked absolutely nothing like this day. In fact, none of us are the same people that we were on that day. Nonetheless, it is still an incredibly important day in our story and we are so excited to share it with you. We just don’t want to in any way romanticize adoption. It is a whole lot more than this one day.
Part of our story, though, is having had the incredible opportunity to watch meeting day videos of other families in the years we spent thinking, talking, and praying about adoption. We are so grateful for how others were willing to share with us, and so we want you all to have the chance to enter into this process in an even deeper way, if you so choose.
