24 Hours

Intellectually, I know I met Henry less than 2 weeks ago...

Intellectually, I know we are not biologically related...

Intellectually, I know that I cannot erase an entire year of being in an orphanage in one day...

But after 24 hours together, I can truly say...

I would die for him.

Just like all of my children.


  1. Then you are still ahead by like, a whole box of tissues ;-)

    because your blog has made me cry about 20 times since I found it (and Reece's Rainbow) last January!!!

    thanks for helping me find my own little AMC guy...we are seriously thinking about trekking to Philly from Chicago for treatment for him!!


  2. Carla-I know things are crazy right now-but once you get home and can catch a brief moment (take your time dear), can you please contact me? I have a couple questions about the region you were in. Thanks. :) you can leave a post on my blog, and I can get you my email comments have to be cleared first so it won't be shown.

  3. Isn't it amazing????? Can't wait to see Henry at home!!


  4. So simple and so beautiful! You made me cry!

  5. It is indeed an amazing feeling! We too added to our family through adoption and prior to this I guess I did wonder about how could someone love an adopted child as much as a bio - umm, I can now shout it out that I would die for any of my kids and I don't think anyone could figure out who was who among our kids - it is amazing to get this extra chance to parent and I praise God for sending her our way.
