Today is "Gotcha Day" or "Adoption Day"! I know people call it different things but it has been 4 years ago today since Tom and I stood in a little room with 8 other families in China and had Lindze placed in our arms for the first time. It was a day that I will always remember. The day we became a forever family. Lindze had this complete look of shock on her face. She never cried not once the whole time we were in that social welfare building. It took a lot for us to hold it together because it had been such a long journey for us to get to that day. I will never forget that day and I want to thank God for the blessing that he bestowed on us 4 years ago. I also have to thank Lindze's birth country China for allowing us to bring home one of their precious children. And of course I will never forget her birth mother who made such a sacrifice in order for that day to happen for us. Happy Adoption Day Lindze. We love you!!
