  5. OK, now I'm crying........her giggle, and her little dimpled smile, and to see those first precious moments with you.....thanks for sharing that. To see you just staring at her as she stares back at you while she eats.........wow. What an amazing glimpse into the absolute blessing of adoption.

  10. Tear here too! You both are beaming!!!

    It's wonderful to have these precious moments on video...and it's great to see you and Dan 'live':-).

    The last video really choked me up when you were feeding Evie...I loved how she grabbed your hand as you held the bottle. Priceless.

    Hugs,

  16. I don't know you guys, but found your blog...can't even remember how I stumbled upon it. I was riveted to your adoption process story and check back often to see the progress. I just finished watching these beautiful videos and cried tears of joy for you guys. You have such a beautiful family already and just made it even more beautiful. Thank you for following God's heart in adoption...we are supporters of Show Hope/Steven Curtis Chapman, and I love to see stories like yours unfold. Little Evie is so adorable and I know you guys are caring for her with the love of Jesus! God Bless!
