Do these girls need picked up, or what?
One evening, while Jon was working late, I went on Youtube and searched for "Gotcha Day" videos.
Oh my. I would recommend it if you have time and don't mind tearing up a lot (okay, I was weeping more than tearing up, but I am a really emotional).
Gotcha Day is the term that has been coined as the day when the adoptive parents finally meet their children. Many adoptive families celebrate these days annually, almost like a birthday, by pulling out the pictures/videos from the trip and remembering. I have heard that children that are adopted at an older age, actually prefer to celebrate their Gotcha Day as their birthdays can feel very bittersweet.
Needless to say,
I AM DYING, no, too dramatic...I cannot wait for our day. If all goes according to plan, our Gotcha Day will be on April 18th or 19th.
May your Good Friday be blessed!
