gotcha day '09...

Remember our special Gotcha Day last year? (you can read our before, during, and after blog posts from that day)

Even though we got to take sweet Caroline home from the hospital at 2 days old and she's always been ours, all adoptions take several months before they're officially finalized in court. (due to paperwork, etc.) So last year our family flew all the way back to Texas for our special "Gotcha Day." (and I didn't even crack a smile, remember that?)

Well, this year on Gotcha Day, I've got plenty of 'em!

Could it be the fact that I got to have a huge heaping of ice cream to celebrate my adoption??? And since we couldn't GO to Texas for this Gotcha Day, we had to do the closest thing to it by going to eat some good 'ole Texas barbecue! (it's important to remember my roots, ya know)

Caroline Elizabeth, little do you know what a gift from God you are and how much you are cherished.

We're soooo glad we "gotcha."

  1. Congrats on your "Gotcha" day. Only those of us who have adopted can truly understand how wonderful a day this is. Praying for you that you will get to celebrate this again in the near future. We are also trying to adopt #2.

  2. Yay Caroline! You're such a blessing.

    Just a few Gotcha Days from now you'll understand what it's about. What a special day to celebrate!

  3. Happy Gotcha Day to you, Marc and Caroline!! What a blessing!!

  4. Caroline,
    I praise God He sent you to us and thank Him for "Gotcha" day. We are so thankful, and look forward to many, many "Gotcha" days.

    Love Y'all,

    Nanny & Papa
