The day we came home

One year ago today, my husband made the decision that it was time for our family to begin the process of adopting a baby from Africa. It was Father’s Day and he made the decision to be a daddy to a little girl who needed someone to love, protect, serve and lead her. One year later, we have the joy of being adoptive parents to our beautiful, strong Gabrielle. She captures our hearts more every day and we are overwhelmed with joy and thanksgiving.

Today I want to share some beautiful photos my friend Natalie took the day I brought Gabrielle home. These photos capture the emotions we felt: exhaustion, anticipation, love, thanksgiving.

These photos capture gratitude.
