Happy Special Day!!!

Today is a very special day! 14 years ago today, my husband and I boarded a plane to travel to another country to adopt our 8 week old son. Oh my gosh, it was one of the best days of my life! I had never seen such a cute baby!! I was totally in love. Tons of loose black ringlets, tiny rosebud lips, chubby cheeks, chubby legs, chubby everything, the most giant eyes I had ever seen (until we adopted our little girl) and the most gorgeous skin ever! We bonded instantly!
What a joyous day it was. We celebrate it every year like a birthday but now that he is 14 I am waiting for him to wake up!!!
