As I sit here typing, you lay sleeping and growing bigger by the minute. From the very second I found out I was going to be your mommy I have loved you. In fact, I don't have the words to adequately describe this feeling inside I have for you.
When I got to hold you for the first time, I felt disbelief that you were really here. I also felt love growing for the precious woman who carried you for 9 months. She and I will always look upon you with a special kind of love. Your newborn face was so alert and beautiful.
Even though we brought you home in July, and you have been "ours" to love and care for over the last 5 months, yesterday our little family stood before a judge in a courtroom and you legally became our son.
On our two back doors, I asked guests to please write their responses to my questions below:
Some of the responses were:
~I love his smile and laugh.
~I love his tiny perfectly healthy body.
~I love his large vocabulary (haha!).
~I love the way he completes the Gordon family.
~The list is too long of all the ways God's hand was in this adoption.
~The timing of how Haley found the Gordons.
~The healing of his mass in his lung.
~The way Jake completes their years of perseverance.
As you grow up, please know that you are loved by tons and tons of people who have prayed for you and will continue to do so.....

PS...this video link is a tribute to Haley. It would mean the world to me if you really watched it!
