Happy Gotcha Day! My Prince of Ethiopia!

Happy Gotcha Day! My Prince of Ethiopia! 

 

Three years ago today, our son made us a family!  We were in Ethiopia, we had just stepped off the plane, driving through a strange city, on our way to a new way of life, a family way of life.  And even before I could get out of the car, my son was in my arms. 

I know this is a bit of a cliché but I can’t image my life without Vander now.  It’s truly hard to remember what it was like to have so much time to myself.    I have been humbled by this curious, active and independent four year old.  In watching Vander grow and bloom into this remarkable little boy all of my secret fears seem absurd.  Thank you, thank you,Vander for making us a family!  And to quote our little man, “I love you to the moon, to the stars, to the sun, to big blue, to the trees, to Miss Sherry’s house and BACK!”
