Last week we celebrated my Gotcha Day! (Oct. 13th 2 years ago was the day my adoption was finalized and my name was officially changed in court-- see pics here) You know, as an adopted kid, I get it pretty good around here, because not only do I get a BIRTHDAY, but I get a little GOTCHA DAY celebration, too! Our family enjoyed spending an evening together, rejoicing in God's beautiful plan for our family.
And for my gotcha day present this year, I got a doctor's kit! (kinda ironic, we know...)
Oh, you don't know how good it is for me to be on the other end of things where I'm the one giving the shots! It's about time!
"Daddy, I'm going to check you." (listens) "Sounds pretty good!"
As I always tell Mommy & Daddy, "We are the family and we love each other."
And through the challenges we've faced together this year, that statement couldn't ring more true.
