special day...

January 14th, 2008
We saw a the most beautiful picture, of the sweetest little boy, on our computer screen...
The caseworker on the phone said "This baby boy needs a mommy and daddy"... and we said "No! WE need HIM! What a special, strong little boy, who has already survived so much trauma.... oh how he will bless us... we would be HONORED to be his mommy and daddy! What a miracle he is!"

And so we said YES to our sweet Sammy, and it was the best decision we've ever made! Three years ago today, we saw the face that would change our lives for the better, and teach us what love, grace, commitment, and family really means... Just a few months later he would be in our arms forever...

Sammy exudes light and hope, and he brightens our lives every single day. I can't believe it's been three years... We love you Sammy Sam!

  3. I remember seeing his picture for the first time and thinking he was the cutest baby I'd ever seen! He's precious. And it's true. These kiddos don't need us nearly as much as we need them! Happy referralversary.
