Adoption Video

Our 13th anniversary of my parents and I meeting for the first time is in a few days and I figured I would share this now when I have time. This video was taken in China through out their trip to get me. It includes video of when we first met, when I was 8 months old.

Awwww...Abby, that video made me cry. Thank you for sharing what was probably the best day in all three of your lives. You are still as adorable now as you were when you were 8th months old.

No matter how many times I see this video, both the tears and smiles appear. Love to my granddaughter.

Happy gotcha day. a beautiful video of your first moments with your parents. It brings back my first moments with our adoptive daughter - who is now in Miss Jill's class. So of course the shiny wet eyes as I relive our moment through your special day. Oh the love we have for our girls! It started in our lock step march through long hours of paperwork, and ended with a beautiful child in our arms to raise and to love. We are very lucky parents- to have our beautiful Asian born children- the likes of you Abby. Your parents I am sure are pinching themselves over how fast it has gone. I know I am.... Thanks for sharing a big moment in your lives with us, with this special video.

Beautiful Video- Our family was made the same way as yours. We know personally the joy of adoption. Our video looks so much like yours ,the day our lives were happily changed forever. So nice to enjoy and give rise to the misting of my eyes. Seeing your video tells me how fast my daughter will get to be your age... and how time flies. Currently my daughter is in your Mom's class. Your mom is awesome,and a great teacher.
