Less than two hours ago, our daughter was placed into my arms and my care. Forever. 638 days have passed since we first saw our Lil’ Cowgirl’s face and those days felt like an eternity. And now suddenly, those days are behind us and we begin a whole new journey. It is absolutely surreal that […]

Meeting Our Daughter

Next and Final Steps!
