Most people in the adoption world tend to celebrate the day they "got", "picked up", "met" their child for the first time. Our journey with sweet Kylee was a bit different as she was in and out of our home a bit, and then there was a long time period before her adoption could be finalized.
Our Gotcha Day represents the day she legally became part of our family.
Yesterday, April 20th marked the anniversary of this tremendous day!
We began the day by going on a field trip to Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site.
Kylee was able to spend time with a close friend
As did Mélika
We got out the big guns
And had some silly reenactment between North and South
We learned much, visited with established friends, and met some new one.
And...we had much conversation about adoption.
(my favorite subject next to the greatness of our loving God!)
Later we were joined by my hubby for a special Gotcha Day dinner out. Kylee's choice for this special dinner was Red Robin...Yum!
She drank her milkshake first! what else would we do on such a special day?!
Then we shared this tower of onion rings.
Baby girl, we are so very humbled and blessed that God brought you to our family! You add sparkle and life to our world and we love you more than words can say!!
