One Year Home

Today marks one year that we have been home with Gideon. 

Thinking about our homecoming welcome at the airport always brings tears to my eyes. It was such a sweet moment for our family. I love that we have all of these special days to remember each year. In adoption, there is so much we miss out on. But there is also so very much we gain! 

It has been such a joy to have Gideon here this year to decorate the Christmas tree and to celebrate with. We have so much ahead to look forward to, but today I am stopping to appreciate all that we have RIGHT NOW!

I'm feeling really blessed right now!
