A week of gratitude...

I am Thankful... for loving sacrifices.

My heart is full because I know that my wonderful sister and brother in law will be meeting their little boy for the first time today. Last week they started a very long journey to China and today they will be rewarded for their love and sacrifice. They have seen pictures but today they will hold him in their arms for the very first time. What a blessing this sweet little boy will be in their lives. I know that they will be amazing parents and will give him a beautiful life that he would not have had with out loving parents.

So, today I am grateful to the birth parents of Kai that left him knowing that they could not give him the life that he needed. This gesture of love and sacrifice made it possible for my sister to become a mom today.

Dear Kai~

I want to you know how very loved you are. Your Mommy and Daddy fell in love with you the second that they saw your picture. It was a hard and emotional road to make sure that they could be your parents. They did this because they knew that you were meant to be part of their family. They knew that it would not be complete with out you. Your parents choice to adopt was a decision of love. You are a very special little boy with very special parents. I love you so much and can not wait to meet you. You have a very special place in my heart. I love you tons!!!
