four years!


four years ago today noah was recognized as a varela the court. he was our son in our hearts long before that, but today is the day it became official. to read the cliff notes version of our adoption journey click here.


noah chose red robin as the place he wanted to celebrate his special day. we ate, opened presents, even had singing and a sundae. we are so thankful for this most precious of gifts.

What an awesome story! I got teary reading it. I can only imagine the emotions involved in the process. There's a family in our church who has 2 adopted daughters. Each year they celebrate their "Gotcha Day." It's really powerful to hear the girls talk freely about what they're doing on their Gotcha Day and their adoption stories.
